I got this from my mother-in-law, who got it from HER mother-in-law. There is no better way to enjoy the brief but glorious peach season!
Servings: 8Prep Time: 1 hour
one baked pie shell
4-5 cups sliced peaches
4 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon butter
Puree enough of the peaches to make 1 1/2 cups puree. Mix puree with cornstarch, sugar and water and cook over medium heat until thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in butter. Cool slightly, then lightly coat pie shell with sauce. Add a layer of peaches, a layer of sauce, a layer of peaches (the top layer can be arranged in a fancy spiral if desired) and a final layer of sauce, making sure all peaches are coated. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least four hours. Serve with whipped cream if desired. (To me, it is absolute perfection all by itself.)
