This was very tasty...I made it for my family and they loved it too! (by the way I cut it in half and used a 8 by 8 pan .....where do you find a 12by 12 baking dish?)

This was so delicious. The patients loved it and even came back for seconds. I thought it was crispier when served immediately from the oven, but the patients tasted it the following day (after the "crisp" had gone soft) and they had no complaints. I used splenda brown sugar as a substitute for reg. sugar - turned out really good.

Yummy. I am on a Low Phosphorus diet, and I made this for my Whole family they really enjoyed it. I used fresh fruit ( I made it in summer 08) so I reduced the sugar, and added a dash of cinnamon and some freshly grated nutmeg. ( and a sprinkle of vanilla extract to the peaches. Did I say , YUMMY.

Eliminate the sugars and substitute either orange juice concentrate, maple syrup and/or agave. If the peaches are really good, you don't need any sweetening! Use whole grain flour, and then it's great for us who avoid sugar and flour. Moderator note: Orange juice concentrate adds extra potassium so not a good ideal for people on a low potassium diet. Whole grain flour sounds healthy, but it contains more potassium (488 mg/cup) and phosphorus (466 mg/cup)than refined flour (potassium 234 mg/cup, phosphorus 135 mg/cup). People who are on a low phosphorus and/or low potassium diet may want to stick with refined flour.
