Great peach pie! I omitted the almond extract and added some cinnamon instead. It works equally well with either fresh or frozen peaches.

This is very good but I made it with my peach cobbler recipe. So easy. Stir together 1 cup sugar, 1 cup self rising flour, I cup buttermilk. Must be buttermilk. Let 1 stick of butter melt in a 9x13 glass dish in a 350 degree oven. When hot and melted pur your batter into the hot dish. Spread the peach pie filling across the top leaving 2 inch’s of batter around it. I also added water and cornstarch to get a little more juice because I like mine like the canned peach pie filling. Bake for 45 minutes on 350. Take out and sprinkle the top with I tablespoon cinnamon and 3 tablespoons sugar mixed together. Place under broiler until brown and carmalized. Using the cinnamon topping I would use it in the peach pie filling would be too muck.

I substituted nectarines and left out the nutmeg, and this pie is wonderful!! There is nothing like a fresh peach/nectarine pie from fruit off the tree.

Delicious recipe. My family rated it a keeper. I used 3 large and 8 smaller peaches. It was just the right amount. Based on personal preference, I decreased the nutmeg by half because I didn't want it to overpower the peaches.

Overall, good recipe! I like the combination of the white and brown sugars, though I did use only half of each and found it to be plenty sweet. I did think it was too spiced, taking over the flavor of the peaches a bit.
