"I love anything with peaches and this was yummy to my tummy:-). I don't particularly like anything too sweet; I like to taste my food first and let the condiments enhance the flavor of the dish. With that said, I used a can of lite peaches and the other was a can of non-lite peaches (regular). The cup of sugar that goes in with the syrup was reduced to half a cup. NOTE: mix the cornstarch and flour together in separate bowl. Add enough of the room temp syrup from the peaches to incorporate the flour/cornstarch mixture. When mixed together, dump everything into the saucepan holding the rest of the syrup and turn heat on. This will prevent the cornstarch to lump up. When done, we ate it with a little vanilla ice cream. The only change I would do next time is reduce the sugar in the crust as well and that's only because for me it was still a little too sweet (sensitive taste buds:-)). By the way, if you're wondering about the crust, it just adds an extra buttery taste to dish. In my opinion, you can skip the crust and still end up with a dee-lish dish that will be devoured by all:-)"

"Good recipe. I always like to add some cinnamon and nutmeg to my peaches. Occasionally I add some blueberries and/or lemon juice and zest. Also, be sure to disolve cornstarch in a COLD liquid (a little water works fine) before adding it to the peach juice. This will prevent the cornstarch from clumping together and you dont have to strain the peaches this way either."

"I used fresh New Jersey white peaches and regular peaches to make this dish colorful. I did not have enough light brown sugar so I used light and dark brown. This made a very tasty bottom crust! All in all, this is a very good recipe, but a bit of work. My husband loved it and I did too. Thank you, trichard for the amounts of sugar cornstarch and water. I did use a bit less sugar, but still had great results."

While searching in my pantry I found two cans of apple pie filling. I substituted the pie filling for the peaches and it turned out wonderful. I think from now on I'm going to use peach pie filling instead of thickening the juice with cornstarch and sugar. It cut down on a lot of time and effort."

"I would give this 5 stars with a few "tweeks". Way too much sugar and butter. I reduced the 1 cup of sugar in the filling to 1 T, the butter in the crust to 1/4 C and the for the topping I reduced the butter to 4 T and brown sugar to 1/3 C and it was plenty sweet, might reduce even further next times. With those few changes this is a great summer treat and will definitely make it again."

"I'm sure this recipe is great as written and will try it that way soon. I looked it up because I had some fresh Georgia peaches from a trip from Fla to Ct. I halved the recipe and used a smaller baking dish. The crust was odd and I cooked it an extra 5 minutes.

There was hardly any liquid from the peaches so I supplemented with water.
I had steel cut oats on hand so that's what I used.
After assembly and baking I tasted a spoonful and wasn't impressed. Didn't get much of the crust and the oat topping was tough.
I grabbed a serving spoon full, microwaved it for 30 seconds and topped with half & half. Amazing and delicious.
Can't wait to try the real thing."

I also found a canned dietetic peach filling which I used for the filling, instead of the peaches and sugar mixture. It turned out great! I also reduced the margarine by several tablespoons and it was still great. In my oven, the bottom crust took LONGER to bake--not sure if that was due to my oven or the artificial sweetener.

"Delicious and you don't want to cut out the bottom crust. It has a wonderful taste and adds to the dessert as a whole. I did cut sugar in crust to 1/3 c and butter to 6 Tbls, in filling I reduced sugar to 3/4 c, and in topping I reduced sugar to 1/3 again and 4 Tbls butter. With all these changes it was still sweet, but you could taste the peaches more than the sugars. Next time I will cut down the flour in the topping as it made way too much for a 9 in square and I would rather have the oats anyway."
