    Golden Peach Pie

    Source of Recipe

    From "Taste of Home Grandma's Favorites"

    Recipe Introduction

    "Years ago, I entered this pie in a county fair, and it won a first-place blue ribbon plus a purple ribbon for Best All Around. Family and friends agree with the judges - it's a perfectly peachy pie."

    List of Ingredients

    ◦ 2 sheets refrigerated pie crust
    ◦ 5 cups sliced peeled fresh peaches (about 5 medium)
    ◦ 2 teaspoons lemon juice
    ◦ teaspoon grated orange zest
    ◦ ⅛ teaspoon almond extract
    ◦ 1 cup sugar
    ◦ cup cornstarch
    ◦ teaspoon ground nutmeg
    ◦ ⅛ teaspoon salt
    ◦ 2 tablespoons butter


    Line a 9-inch pie plate with one crust; trim, leaving a 1-inch overhang around edge. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine the peaches, lemon juice, grated orange zest, and extract. Combine the sugar, cornstarch, nutmeg, and salt. Add to peach mixture; toss gently to coat. Pour into crust; dot with butter.

    Roll out remaining crust to 1 ⅛-inch-thick circle; cut into strips of various widths. Arrange over filling in a lattice pattern. Trim and seal strips to bottom crust; fold overhang over. Lightly press or flute edge. Cover the edges loosely with foil.

    Bake at 400 F for 40 minutes.
    Remove foil; bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, 10 to 15 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator.

    Makes 8 servings
