Butterscotch Peach Pie

Butterscotch Peach Pie

Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup shortening
4 to 5 tablespoons cold water

FILLING:
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/3 cup light corn syrup
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
8 medium peaches, peeled and sliced

Directions
In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle.

For filling, in a small saucepan, combine brown sugar and flour. Stir in corn syrup and butter until blended. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in lemon juice and extract. Place peaches in a large bowl; add syrup mixture and toss to coat.

Divide dough in half so one ball is slightly larger than the other. Roll out larger ball to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Transfer to pie plate; trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate. Add filling. Roll out remaining pastry; make a lattice crust. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cover edges loosely with foil.
