Fresh Peaches and Cream Pie

 I love peaches.  I love peeling a ripe peach and eating it with my morning cereal or on pancakes or in a get the picture.  I came across this recipe when I was in high school.  My friend's mom made it while we were studying and it's been on my mind ever since.  I am posting this now because peaches are now ripe and delicious.  There are orchards all over the place that have vine-ripe peaches.  Albertsons has decent ones as well.  I took a pie to my neighbor last night.

Melt 20 large marshmallows with 1/4 cup milk on LOW until it looks like this. 
 Then take 4-6 peaches and peel and slice them.  Make sure you use sweet peaches (not canning).  These are O'Henry's...they are divine.
Whip 1/2 pint whipping cream (I use heavy whipping cream)  until peaks form.  Then add the marshmallow/milk mixture.  Make sure the marshmallow is not warm to the touch...just room temp.  If you use it too soon, it will prevent the mixture from setting up.  If its too cool, it is nearly impossible to get it out of the pan (I've done this before and it was like I was working in a glue factory...the marshmallow was sticky and everywhere).  I usually stir the mixture until it is cool.
It needs to look like this.
Stir in your fresh peaches
until well incorporated.
Pour into your pie shell and refrigerate one hour (if you can).
 So delicious!  Oh, and my neighbor just called.  She said the pie was fantastic and the recipe needs a gold star.  Told ya it was a keeper!

    Is this the peach pie Lois Moser used to make? If so, I have been thinking of this pie ever since we lived in Twin Falls! Can't wait to try!
