White Peach pie
July 22, 2012
I just had the most tasty piece of pie I have ever eaten, made with white peaches from a receipe in this book... so, I had to look it up. It was such a unique blend of flavors delicate and sweet with a touch of cinammon with a perfect crust; just what one would imagine a down-home pie should taste like. I am hooked and must buy this book.
