Ingredients

Crust

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
3 to 5 tablespoons cold water

Filling

1/4 cup sugar
5 to 6 medium (5 cups) peaches, peeled, pitted, sliced 1/2-inch
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted

Topping

Sweetened whipped cream or ice cream, if desired

Directions

Heat oven to 400°F. Combine flour, 1/4 cup sugar and salt in medium bowl; stir in butter with fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in enough water with fork just until flour is moistened and mixture forms dough. Shape dough into ball.

Press or roll pastry into 14-inch circle on greased baking sheet. Fold edges in 1 inch to form 12-inch circle; loosely crimp edges. Prick bottom of crust with fork. Bake for 12 minutes or until edges just begin to brown.

Meanwhile, place 1/4 cup sugar, peaches, cornstarch, lemon juice and ginger in large bowl; toss lightly.

Arrange peaches on hot, partially baked crust; sprinkle with almonds. Continue baking for 20 to 25 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Serve warm with dollop of sweetened whipped cream, if desired.

Recipe Tip

- To peel peaches easily, place peaches in boiling water for 20 to 30 seconds, then dip in cold water.

- To toast almonds, spread evenly in shallow baking pan. Bake at 350°F., stirring once, for 5 to 7 minutes or until light areas of nuts begins to brown.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

Super easy recipe! Great flavor:
We substituted toasted walnuts for almonds and maple walnut flavoring for almond extract. Our peaches were over ripe, and served with vanilla ice cream. Outstanding.
