Last week I made another trip to the peach orchard. Yesterday, a few of the peaches that were left were not looking very good. They needed to be used up. I thought about making a cobbler but I wanted to make something different. I found a recipe that I had made several years ago but I changed a few things about it this time. I was really happy with the results. We liked the pie really well.
This recipe makes a great summertime dessert. You do need to make it ahead of time as it needs chill.

that looks delicious!
Do you think you could substitute canned peaches if they were drained?
@Amy, I think you easily could do that. The texture may be a little different, but I think it would be fine as long as they are well drained.
Did you use really small peaches? I got what I believe to be average sized peaches, and only ended up using 6 of them and it still ended up being too big for the crust/lid. Haven’t tasted yet, but it looks very “chunky” so I wasn’t sure if I did something wrong 🙁
@Tara Dawes, I think they were pretty average sized, but we like it chunky. I am sorry that it did not turn out like you hoped it would. I hope it still tastes good.
It still turned out pretty good (the family seemed to enjoy it), I think next time I will just use fewer peaches, but the recipe is definitely a keeper!
@Tara Dawes, Thanks for letting me know. I am glad you liked it.
