See this answer to the same question: gardening.stackexchange.com/questions/3092/… It is almost certainly peach leaf curl and is combated when the parasites migrate to or from the leaves in early spring and late autumn. –  Lisa May 1 '12 at 0:34

Looks like peach leaf curl. As far as I know it is not curable, but it is preventable (for next year) -- quoting from that UNL page:

Fortunately, peach leaf curl is one of the easiest fruit diseases to control. In most years, leaf curl can be effectively prevented with a single application of an appropriate fungicide, including lime sulfur, chlorothalonil, Bordeaux mixture, or a copper fungicide.

You should spray in late winter.
