Farm-stand berries are folded into a cinnamon-laced filling that's obscured not with waves of whipped cream but with glistening glazed peaches.

  • Whisk yolks in a medium bowl until combined. Pour in milk mixture in a slow, steady stream, whisking until completely incorporated. Return mixture to the saucepan, and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it returns to a boil, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Immediately remove from heat, and stir in cinnamon. Add butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, whisking until butter melts before adding another piece. Let custard cool in saucepan on a wire rack, whisking occasionally, for about 10 minutes. Gently fold in berries until evenly distributed.

  • Pour custard into graham cracker crust. Press plastic wrap directly on surface of custard. Refrigerate until custard filling is chilled and firm, at least 4 hours (or overnight).

  • Spoon peaches with syrup onto center of pie, and serve immediately.

Mine turned out terrible and soupy :[ BUT I made the espresso cream pie from the same issue and it had similar recipe directions so I added a packed of gelatin to the recipe and it worked great! I am going to try this one again and do the same thing. You can see my results with the gelatin here: http://tinyurl.com/ylpq8fg

i just made this and noticed it wasn't thickened at all either :[ i guess maybe people should add an extra egg yolk or two, more corn starch would be kinda gross in my opinion....... hopefully mine will still taste good.

I made this pie for guests, but it did not thicken in the pie shell. I served it with spoons, instead of forks.
