    refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.

    Mix peaches with lemon juice. Add sugar and flour and

    Roll out the first pastry disc and place in a 9" pie

    Roll out second disc. Cut slits in a decorative pattern.
    Place on top of filling. Wet edges of bottom pastry with
    cold water. Trim pastry; pinch bottom and top edges

    Bake @ 425°F/218°C for 15 minutes, turn down to
    375°F/190°C and cook until peaches bubble and pastry is
    golden, about 45 minutes. Serve slightly warm with ice
