The Butterfly Wedding: THe PIE?

This is the butterfly wedding and it's a bit different.. so don't just serve cake.. serve pie. This pie is one of my favorites and I try to make some every year when the peaches are on...

Barbara's Fresh Peach Pie...
1 heaping cup of flour
1/2 c. butter or margarine
3 1/2 T. powdered sugar
Blend together and press into 9-10 inch pie pan. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Cool.
3/4 c. sugar
4 T. cornstarch
3 T. light corn syrup
5 T. peach or lemon jello powder
1 drop orange food coloring
2 T. lemon juice + enough water to make
1 1/2 c. of liquid
4-6 peeled and sliced peaches (fresh)Mix sugar and cornstarch, add corn syrup and liquid.
Bring to a boil and cook 6 minutes, stirring constantly. Add jello powder and food coloring. Stir to dissolve jello crystals. Cool mixture. Stir in sliced peaches and pour into pie crust. Allow to set in refrigerator 2-3 hours.
And, if you want to make it extra special...
If you save out about 1/3 c. of the syrup before adding the peaches, you can mix the remaining syrup with 1/3 c. evaporated milk and pour it over the pie after the filling has completely set.
