Peach Plum Pie
When I want to impress guests, this is the pie I prepare. Peaches, plums and a bit of lemon peel are a refreshing trio that wakes up taste buds. It's a family favorite that's requested often. -Susan Osborne, Hatfield Point, New Brunswick

I love this recipe, and have made it several times. The almond extract is a brilliant addition.

Excellent flavor I had to substitute flour for the tapioca as I was out. It is a very sweet pie. One could cut back on the sugar.
