Fresh Peach Pie

 

Wondering what to do with those juicy peaches hanging out on the roadside stands, the farmer’s market and in the grocery stores – better yet, maybe you’re lucky enough to have a peach tree in your own backyard!  How about a fresh peach pie – literally, the filling is unbaked, so you get that fresh, juicy peach flavor in every bite.  It’s like eating a fresh peach –  only better.   If peach pie has never been on your favorite list, you might just have to rethink your list after this version!
