This pie is wonderfully tasty and creamy. I used peaches fresh from my neighbour's tree and it was absolutely wonderful. The pie didn't set quite well in the oven but it perfectly did after a few hours in the fridge. Just one thing: BE SURE TO USE A DEEP DISH PIE SHELL!!! Read More

I definitely agree with others that one cup of cream is just too much. I only used a quarter cup and it was still too soupy so I added in a couple of egg yolks to bind it up a bit. The nutmeg was a nice touch and so was the cinnamon I decided to use. Hard one to rate because the flavor was certainly there and everyone loved it. Thanks Laria! Read More

This was a big hit with my family. It was so runny when it came out of the oven I was afraid it wouldn't set up. After a few hours in the fridge it set up beautifully. I'll definately make it again. Read More

I thought it was great. weeks after I made it my uncle commented on it. Be sure to purchase a deep dish pie crust. I am going to try it with apples since they are in season. Sooo.. easy. Read More

This was really good and easy to make. It's a bit on the rich side with so much cream. I did not have a problem as some did with the pie turning out soupy. I allowed it to brown somewhat during baking and refrigerated overnight so perhaps that helped. I parboiled the peaches for about 30 seconds just long enough to loosen the skins. Made peeling and slicing go so much quicker. Thanks Laria! Read More

I made this pie on a Sunday and it was gone by Tuesday morning. I always read the reviews before I make any of these recipes. Good thing. I decreased the amount of cream to a 1/2 cup and I added 1 t of cornstarch to the dry mixure. I let the pie chill for two hours before I cut into it. This was by far the best peach pie I've ever had!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'll be making this again and again. Read More

This recipe was very good I didn't use as much cream as the recipe called for and it still seemed real creamy to me next time I will cut the cream in half maybe use only a quarter of what it calls for. Read More
