This is a family recipe courtesy of my dear friend Lindsay - she recently brought it to a weekend cottage getaway where it received rave reviews. A lovely combination of a rich buttery shortbread crust and a creamy custard filling studded with slices of fresh ripe sweet Ontario peaches. It's rich, but that won't stop you from wanting seconds. I think this would be amazing served with a dollop of whipped cream on top.
