Custard Apple Pie

“I found this recipe when I was looking for an alternative to double crusted apple pie but a little fancier than the Dutch version. This actually calls for peaches instead of apples, but having none on hand and "baker's itch" I substituted apples,added the cinnamon,and it turned out so well that I have yet to try it with peaches. I like it best served a little warm.”
