Either using fresh peaches or canned pie filling for your topping, this is a refreshing and quick pie to make for any gathering or family function. This brings the beginning or end of summer a big feeling of warm sunshine. The filling is perfect, still light enough with that cool smooth creamy taste but not to heavy after a big meal. This is sure to hit the spot for all our peach lovers. If you prefer a different topping and just want fresh fruit all the better too!
Blueberries, cherries, strawberries and raspberries are all fabulous toppings. If you really in a hurry use pie filling!

Directions for pie:
