1 cup sugar
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons baking powder
dash of salt
2 tablespoons shortening
3 cups sliced peaches

3 1/2 cups self rising flour
1/2 pound butter, softened
4 large egg yolks
1/2 - 3/4 cups sugar
2 teaspoons milk or sour cream
dash of vanilla
zest of 1 lemon
3/4 tablespoons ice water

Preheat the oven to 375. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl, mixing well.

Prepare Dough. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. Add ice water as needed to make dough bind together. Work together with your hands to form a smooth ball of dough. Divide the dough into two parts. Chill for about 30 minutes. Roll out each part of the dough with a rolling pin to about 1/8 inch thick. Use one to line the bottom and up the sides of a baking dish. Prick the dough with a fork. Bake in the oven 5-7 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven. Add the peach filling. Place the second rolled out dough on top of the filling. Pinch edges. Bake at 30 minutes or until done.
