Fresh Peach Pie

This is an awesome fresh peach pie recipe from my sister Janae. It is light, refreshing and not too sweet. Doesn't this picture make you want to take a bite? You can make this two different ways, as pictured or with a cream cheese filling layered on the bottom! Either way is delish! If you have fresh peaches and like pie, this recipe is a must!

How much cornstarch does one need?

Sorry about that Matt. The recipe calls for 3 Tbs cornstarch. I updated the recipe post. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I hope you enjoy the pie!
