Golden Peach Pie

2 1-pound cans sliced cling peaches
1/2 C. sugar
2 T. flour
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
2 T. butter or margarine
1 T. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. grated orange peel
1/8 tsp. almond extract
Pastry for 2-crust 9-inch pie

Drain peaches, reserving 1/3 C. syrup. Combine sugar, flour, nutmeg, and a dash salt. Add reserved syrup. Cook, stirring constantly, till thick and bubbly.
Add butter, lemon juice, peel, and extract, then peaches. Line 9-inch pie plate with pastry; fill. Adjust top crust, cutting slits for escape of steam. Seal. Bake at 400 for 40 -45 minutes. I brushed the top of mine with egg whites and then I sprinkled it with sugar.
