Instructions
  1. The bottom crust will cook better if you use one of the lower oven racks, maybe one down from the center. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Prepare double crust; see recipe under Sweets and Treats.
  3. Peel and slice the peaches and mix with the lemon juice to hold their color.
  4. Combine all the remaining filling ingredients to keep flour and starch from lumping. Sprinkle over the peaches and fold carefully to coat well.
  5. Place bottom crust in pie plate according to directions. Spoon in peach mixture and moisten the edge of the crust. Lay on the top crust, crimping the edges together. Using a knife, put slits in the top crust to release steam.
  6. Place pie in the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes. Turn the heat to 350 degrees and cook an additional 25-30 minutes until crust is cooked. With the thawed frozen peaches, juice will probably bubble through the slits.
Recipe Notes

If using frozen peaches, it is a little trickier.  They need to thaw enough that the filling isn’t cold or it won’t set up before the crust gets too dark.  You can partially precook the filling, but you don’t want to put hot filling in your crust or it can get soggy, so if you choose to do that, cool it slightly first.
