    Melt butter in saucepan. Add peaches, brown sugar, cinnamon, sugar and half-and-half. Mix well. Line pan or Dutch oven with crust. Pour in fruit mixture. Cover top with strips of crust in latticework pattern. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes. Moisten strips with water before baking and sprinkle sugar on latticework for crispy finish.
