Amanda's County Fair Grand Champion pie!!
Amanda decided to enter a rhubarb pie in this year's county fair. She used Grandma's recipe but she was tense, she would be competing with women who had baked pies for 50 years or more. I told her to relax, she had Grandma's recipe and Grandma would be watching out for her. (grin)
So, armed with Grandma's pie recipe and a set of maple leaf cookie cutters, she made this pie:
Grandma came though, Amanda won a blue ribbon for pies and a Grand Champion for baked goods:
Her pie was displayed all week at the fair, it was pretty moldy by the time I picked up the ribbon on Sunday, LOL.
Not to be outdone, Mayakla made her own chocolate pie, using the baking tools Jessica sent her. She worked very hard filling the crust:
She topped the chocolate pudding filling with a pie crust cut out of an apple, because she "likes apples".
Here is the proud baker, with her pie:
Fortunately, hers didn't make it to the fair, it just made it to her tummy!
I didn't taste it, but she says it was "yummy". I'm sure it was, a prize winner in my eyes anyway.
