Sprinkle both sides lightly with flour; place in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate. Spoon peach mixture into crust-lined plate. Press firmly against side and bottom. Top with second crust and flute; cut slits in several places. 3 Cover crust edge with strips of foil to prevent excessive browning; bake 20 minutes. Remove foil; brush with preserves. Bake 20 to 30 minutes longer or until golden brown. Cool at least 2 hours before serving. .Julie Gonzalez of Okeana, Ohio, won 1st Place with this recipe at the Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust Pie Baking Championship, 2009 Ohio State Fair.
If you'd rather, 1/8 tsp. nutmeg can be substituted for the cinnamon for a subtle nutty flavor..
