August is peach month. Found this old recipe. It is easy to make and delicious.
Make a light dough of baking powder, and very little shortening; roll thin, and line the sides and ends of a small bread pan: peel the peaches, put them in enough water to cook them and make plenty of juice; cover on top with a crust, leaving holes on top for steam to escape; bake until the peaches are quite tender, in a slow oven; lift all the crust; cut into small pieces, then spread each piece with peaches and juice; sprinkle sugar and small lumps of butter all over, eat with cream or milk.
