Reviews for Raspberry Peach Pie
"I haven't made it yet, but I plan to as soon as I can buy the fruits. Thank you so much for the idea of using rice or beans in the process of baking the pie shell."
"My grandma made this recipe for years -- only difference was only one cup of sugar plus 3 Tablespoons of dry peach jello. Yummy!"
"I made this pie last summer and I wish I would have made several more! It was easy to put together and was just the right combination of sweet and tart. I can't wait until peaches come into season this year so I can make it again. I haven't tried using frozen peaches but I really don't think it would come out as good. It is definitely a keeper in my family."
