  2. For Filling: Layer 6 cups sliced peaches into the crust covered pie plate. Set aside.
  3. In a saucepan, heat 1/8 cup honey, 1/4 cup butter, and 1/4 cup maple syrup until just melted and smooth. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon arrowroot powder, stirring until thickened.
  4. Add to the honey mixture 1/3 cup amaretto liqueur, 3 tablespoon flour, 3 tablespoon lemon juice, and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg. Pour over the peaches.
  5. With the remaining pie crust dough, cover the peaches. Seal the edges and cut small vent holes in the top crust.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 60 minutes, or until the pie is golden brown and bubbling.
