I was told by my boyfriend, his parents, and my roommate this was the best pie any of them have ever ate. I used the 5 nectarines from my local CSA box for this, and loved the tip on hot/cold water to get the skins off. Didn't work perfectly for me, but oh well. The hardest part was cutting the nectarines and getting the pit out! I sliced the nectarines into thin slice, and spread them out in a circle in the pie shell. I did not have almond extract, so I used homemade vanilla extract instead. I also substituted the 2/3 cup of white sugar for 1/3c vanilla sugar I made, and 1/3c brown sugar. I also made a semi-crumble topping with chopped pecans, vanilla sugar, brown sugar, and butter and sprinkled ontop. I HIGHLY recommend this recipe, and next summer i'll try to remember to make extra pies and freeze them!!
