1st Annual Pie Contest

This year, Mark's mom planned a pie baking contest to celebrate the summer and to pay tribute to the "lost art of pie-making". It was a fun excuse to gather friends and family.

Ellen baked her very first pie. It was an apple pie with cut-out pastry leaves decorating the top. It was delicious! She was the youngest contestant. The pies I made were pumpkin pie (left) and raspberry/blackberry pie with a lattice crust (right).

The pies filled at least 5 long tables.

The judging was difficult. These were two of the most experienced judges - they took their job very seriously!

Here are the winners! Congratulations!
