Fresh Peach Pie

It's peach season! This is a delicious way to use those peaches. I make it every year- at least once. It's easy and yummy.
You'll need:
1 single crust pie crust, baked
6-8 peaches
1 1/2 cups sugar + more for sprinkling over peaches
5-6 T. cornstarch
1/2 cup water
2 T. butter
1/2 tsp. almond extract
Whipped Cream, Cool whip, or ice cream for topping

Slice 3 or 4 peaches into a bowl. Sprinkle with sugar. Stir gently. Set aside.
Mash 2-3 large peaches. Put in a saucepan. Add the sugar, corn starch, and water. Cook on med. high heat for about 5 minutes. It should be a full boil. Remove from heat and add the almond extract and butter. Put the peaches in the pie crust and pour the cooked mixture over the top. Chill for several hours. Serve with the whipped or ice cream.
