i used a different pie crust but this filling is AMAZING. i used 1 fresh peach for the puree because thats all i had then i used a jar of peaches for the rest. i used less then a half cup of sugar because the jar peaches were already sweet. this is soo good i cant stop eating. i made it for my husband i just hope there is some left when he gets home.
