    I made it the first time with frozen peaches. Yuck! They were tough and tasteless. Second time with fresh peaches. Still no real peach taste. Third time was the charm. I added one chopped peach to the filling. That boosted the flavor to where I had expected it to be.

    This pie was great, although the filling didn't taste very peachy, it's the peaches on top that made it taste peachy. Also I found the crust too salty even though I used half the salt called for in both the crust and the filling (I used normal salt not kosher) so I would eliminate salt altogether from the crust and use half the amount for the filling. To CKL's comment, I had no issues with adding the 1 TBSP gelatin to 1/4 cup of water, I really don't think it makes a difference, I just made sure the gelatin was fully dissolved when stirring it into the peach puree (which is no problem as the puree is still hot when you do this). The consistency of my pie was perfect so I wonder if there's another reason your pie didn't turn out well?

    Beware! This recipe as written has a mistake. It says " 1 tablespoon of gelatin to 1/4 cup water. If you follow this - which I foolishly did - you will wind up with an icy pie. Yuck. I went back and watched the video where she states to add 1 Tablespoon of gelatin to 1/2 cup cold water. Big difference!! When will I learn to stop trying MS recipes? They always contain critical errors and wind up to be a HUGE waste of time and food. :(

    Absolute winner - made it the night before for brunch on a hot summer day. Light and delicious will make this again and again - our guests all agreed it was a keeper. No changes other than increased the amount of ginger snap cookies it was a little thin I felt the crust needed a bit more structure.
