3 to 4 peaches, depending on size
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell, chilled
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon flour
3 drops almond extract
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Peel the peaches, remove the pits, and cut them in half. Arrange them cut side up in the pie shell. In a bowl, combine the eggs, milk, sugar, flour, and almond extract. Pour this mixture over the peach halves. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 325 degrees and continue baking for about 35 minutes or until a sharp knife inserted into the custard comes out clean. Serve either warm or cold.
