Reviews for Golden Peach Pie
"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."

"I made these in my Emeril mini pie maker and they came out great! (I didn't have any orange peel in the house, so I left that out, but I want to add that next time.)"
"I actually used a crumb topping on this very nice peach pie. It was yummy."
"This is the first peach pie I have ever made and it turned out delicious. I used my own homemade pie crust recipe. Everyone said this pie came out excellent. I did change the almond extract amount to "1/2 teaspoon" and also added "1/4 teaspoon cinnamon". Very easy to make and so extra delicious to eat!"
"This a great ez receipe!! I have made it a couple of time and always turns out!"
"This is amazingly simple and even more delicious!"
"I altered slightly. Used 2 bags frozen peaches about 5 cups. Omited lemon juice, orange peel and almond extract as I did not have them. It still turned out wonderful. Will try the other ingredients sometime."
"This is by far the best peach pie recipe I have ever made. Can't wait for Georgia peaches to be in season. I think it's the almond extract that sets it apart from other pies."
