Sunny Peaches & Cream Pie

This pie is as delicious as it is beautiful. It's not just a summer dessert, either. I also make it for the holidays, using strawberries and strawberry gelatin. —Lorraine Wright, Grand Forks, British Columbia

      I think the 3oz of pudding is wrong. I wondered, but trusted the recipe was correct. My glaze turned out to be like glue paste. Did not work out on top of my pie.

      I've made this several times and we love it! So I had a idea to do it with Mangos since I've not ordered fresh peaches yet. Boy was it delicious as well! Great recipe.

      Our family really liked this recipe, especially my 16-year-old grandson who raved about it! It was really good using Colorado peaches I froze last fall. I accidentally used 1 1/2 cups of water for the glaze instead of 1 1/4 cups and it was fine. This was very easy. It would be even easier with a purchased graham cracker crust.

      They always want more! I substituted orange jello as we did not peach available. Palisade peaches make it really great!

      This pie is amazing! It's definitely a keeper. It was so refreshing on a hot day. It's simple to make and the ingredients are reasonably priced. I did double the filling part of the recipe as I bought a pre-made pie crust which is a little larger than the standard size.

      This recipe looks absolutely amazing! I definitely want to make it this weekend. I don't like gelatin (I'm a vegetarian). Can I just use slices of peaches instead or do you a different recommendation?

      This has been a favorite pie of ours for several years. We like oranges with orange jello, and strawberries with stawberry jello, but you can use any flavor of jello and fruit you want. It is delicious, even with sugar free jello.
