Tips & Suggestions: Leave out agave and maybe 3 dates in filling if it's too sweet. 
Maybe use 2 more peaches in peach pie

Here is where I got my inspiration. I personally liked the peach better but next time, I'll make it a bit less sweet. It was a little too overwhelming for me but everyone else loved it!
