Mom's Divine Fresh Peach Pie!

It's peach season here!! I have oodles of peaches and whenever I have peaches I have to make a few peach pies. My Mom has the best recipe that is my Dad's favorite. He often says "You know what sounds good right now?" And almost always his answer is "peach pie"! And of course he only gets them during this time of year because you have to use fresh peaches for this recipe. The almond flavoring makes all the difference in this pie. So save 5-6 peaches and make this fabulous pie!

Mom's Divine Fresh Peach Pie

(I used a store bought refrigerated pie shell because I was being lazy, but you could easily use your favorite pie crust recipe or try this really good one
1. Slice 3 large peaches in cooked and cooled pie shell.
2. Mash 2-3 peaches and then add 1 cup sugar, 3 Tablespoons corn starch, and 1/2 cup water and mix well.
3. Thicken in the microwave. I put mine on for 2 minutes and then stir, and then 2 more minutes and then stir, etc. Mine usually takes about 6 minutes all together.
4. Add 2 Tablespoons butter and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, and stir until butter is melted.
5. Pour over the sliced peaches in the pie shell and refrigerate until set and cooled.

Sit back and enjoy a slice of heaven!
