Ingredients and Quantities                          

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 6 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar

  • 1 teaspoon almond flavoring
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
  • 4 cups peeled and sliced fresh peaches

Blend flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, oil, salt and milk. Press into greased 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes. In a saucepan, stir cornstarch and water together until there are no remaining lumps. Add sugar and corn syrup. Boil mixture, stirring until thick. Remove from heat.

Of course like most desserts, whipped topping or ice cream will only enhance the taste and presentation. And don't forget to sprinkle with cinnamon.
