Peach Praline Pie

Dee commenting on Leta’s reaction when asked about this recipe: “She was speechless but her eyes were wide. I suppose drool was involved.” Editor’s note: Leta called for this recipe one afternoon when her recipe collection was in my office. Apparently she could not go without it for more than three weeks. That is a good sign.
