About National Peach Pie Day
In the United States, peach pie is a dessert pie typically made in the late summer when fresh peaches are abundant. The filling consists of fresh peaches, sugar, cornstarch or flour, and spices such as cinnamon or nutmeg. A double crust pie has a bottom crust and a lattice top.
