Glazed Peach Pie

“This peach pie is similar to the Loon Lake Blueberry Pie and the Strawberry Glace Pie in that it uses mostly fresh fruit in place of cooked fruit. Though I find this pie a little less sweet than its Blueberry and Strawberry counterparts. It is best with firm, ripe fruit with a smooth as compared to grainy texture. I personally don’t peel the peaches, as many nutrients are in the skin. This results in a more cloudy glaze, but the red skin of the fresh peaches peaks through for a nice effect.” – April Ferre
