– 1 cup water – 1 Tbsp lemon juice – 1 cup brown sugar – ¼ cup cornstarch – ⅛ tsp cinnamon – 2 tsp vanilla extract – 5 cups sliced frozen peaches
In a medium or large sized pot over medium high heat, combine the water, lemon juice, sugar, and cinnamon.
Whisk in the cornstarch.
Stir until the sugar looks dissolved and then add in the peaches and vanilla extract.
Continue cooking and stirring until the mixture becomes thickened. This will take a while depending on how frozen and cold the peach slices were when entering the pot as they have to warm up and thaw before the mixture can solidify. Remember to stir gently.
Once the filling has thickened, remove from heat and allow to cool. Use as desired.
