Apple Pie Contest

I'm really loving my new job. In addition to the great work and people - there are some other cooks in the office!

We recently had an apple pie baking contest.  It was so much fun to taste all of the pies side-by-side. Generally I think apple pie is fairly standard, but it was so interesting to taste all the variations in the recipes.


There was a pie with a crumb topping,



One filled to the brim with appley-goodness!


 A very dainty, prim and proper lattice top,



And my pie (recipe here) topped with decorative leaves. I took home the prize for most creative appearance. We all won prizes, tasted all of the pies, and got a free vacation day for our participation - can't beat that!!

  1. I know I'm biased but I think your apple pie looks the prettiest. :-)

  2. My pie would look most like yours! I love decorating it with little cutouts. I also love crumb topping though!
