cdges. Bake in hot oven (400?) 40 to 45 minutcs or till done. Serve
warm with whipped cream or ice cream; or pass pitcher of cream.
Lattice Crust: Cut strips of dough 1/2 to 3/4 inch wide with pastry
wheel or knife. Lay lengthwise strips on top of filled pie at 1-inch
intervals. Fold back alternate strips to help you weave crosswise
strips over and under, placing them on the diagonal. Trim bottom
crust and lattice strips even with outer rim; seal edges. Dampen edge
lightly with water and place extra strip over it, covering ends of
lattice. Seal, crimp edge.
Tasting-Test Kitchen note: For drained canned or frozen peaches, use
only 1/3 cup sugar.
