Oh my stars, this pie is so good. The citrus flavors and the almond extract really enhance the peach flavor. The only change I made was to use my homemade pastry crust recipe but the filling was exactly the same. My new go to peach pie recipe.

This pie was a hit! I made it for company and there wasn’t s simple piece left! This pie has a great balance of peach flavor and sweetness. The almond and orange are a great touch. I did not have and orange to zest, so I used orange extract instead. This will be my new peach pie recipe!

I had some fresh peaches to use up. My guests gobbled up this pie. I used a little less nutmeg and added a touch of cinnamon.

My very-hard-to-please mother in law, who does not like desserts, was very impressed with my peach pie. This is a real winner!!!

Not usually a peach pie fan but this is a winner. I used the zest of a whole orange and together with the almond extract really adds to the taste. Will definitely make this again.
