6large ripe peachespeels removed (2 for topping the base, 1 for the spiral garnish on top, and 3 for the filling)
garnish: whipped cream
If you have not already done so, bake the pie crust in a pie plate. Set aside to cool.
Lay two peaches worth of peach slices down on top of the baked pie crust. With the third sliced peach, arrange a spiral pattern on the top of the pie (shown above).
In a food processor, blend 3 peaches, sugar, cornstarch and water. After blended, pour into a saucepan and heat over medium high heat until mixture comes to a boil. Add the almond extract and butter and stir. Pour over the peaches and pie crust.
Chill in the fridge for several hours until set up. Serve with whipped cream.
