Peach Pie

My mother always makes a peach pie for me every summer. She’s been doing so since I was a teenager. I just loves juicy peaches combined with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves . They make for a wonderful end of summer pie. This recipe is very simple. You can even use refrigerated pie dough like Pillsbury if you’re short on time.
