So I entered a Pie Baking Contest. My first contest..
Okay, so the first pie I’ve ever really baked..
I’m not really a pie person..
I decided on a Peanut Butter Banana Cream Pie.
But, I needed a kitchen . I called my friend Vicky in Lenox. She has a lovely kitchen with everything I knew I’d need. She was away in Jersey but said “Just go in, and bake , no problem!” She gave me the security code and I crashed her kitchen. My mother met me there. We were planning a mother/daughter pie duo. cute. right?
Almost as cute as this girl voting for my pie.
We baked our butts off , is that even possible with pie?
Pies require patience and precision especially when being voted on.
These are not necessarily the first assets my mother and I would possess in a room together. But that day, we gathered our energy , and we possessed it !
We left the pie overnight in the fridge with a big DO NOT EAT sign, and returned the next day to top it off with whipped cream… yum
The contest took place in Great Barrington and was a hit!
There were some beautiful pies. Like these..
- the one on the left with the berry rings – won!
Here’s my mama voting…
We did not win , but our pie did get devoured, and we met some amazing bakers.
