Lemon juice adds a nice tang but also keeps peaches from turning dark. Frozen peaches can be used if they are first thawed and well drained.

"Tasted great - only used half the sugar. Still plenty sweet!"

"This is my go-to peach pie recipe. Not a fan of having cinnamon with peaches....covers up the fresh flavour of the fruit. This pie also freezes well for a little taste of summer in the winter."
