Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Combine sugar, flour, spice and salt. Add to peaches and mix lightly.
Roll the dough out, with flour to make sure it doesn't stick, and line a 9 inch pie pan. Trim off excess pie dough. Add peach filling. Roll out other ball of dough, with flour. Using water and a brush, brush some water along edge, and place pie dough on top, trim and crimp. Make sure to cut some vents in pie dough
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until done.
To make an even nicer pie. Using an egg wash (1 egg, a bit of water, and a dash of sugar whisked together) brush top of unbaked pie crust and sprinkle with sugar. Then bake it. Makes a lovely color.
