Ingredients 2 1/2 to 3 pounds peaches (about 6 to 8 peaches), peeled, pitted and sliced1/2 cup fruit-only peach preserves1 1/2 tablespoons sugar (optional)1/2 to 1 tablespoon peach liqueur, peach schnapps or peach brandy (optional)1/8 teaspoon almond extract Instructions Combine all filling ingredients in a large bowl, tossing well.
