Personal Notes:
This recipe has been in my family for about 85 years. My great-great cousin, Alma Turner served this pie to her granddaughter, Asalene James.
It is called a Hypocrite Pie because when my family members eat the pie, they think it's a custard pie You can only see the peaches at the bottom of the pie
There are both eggs and peaches in the pie. Alma Turner is from Montgomery County, Mississippi.
