Meet the apple pie challenge
When I was old enough, my mother and I would share household chores.
She washed the clothes and I would iron. I think I got a raw deal in this area.
She cooked and I baked. Baking apple pies was my area of expertise.
When I married, my husband’s maternal grandmother, Grammy Maher, was the apple pie star. One holiday I was told I could make an apple pie even though Grammy Maher was also making apple pies. Well, my apple pie received great reviews.
To this day, in my family, it isn’t a holiday unless my French Apple Crumb Pie is present. But I wonder if it would hold up at the Hollis Old Home Days Apple Pie Contest. Game on!
If you think your apple pie is the best, I challenge you to submit your pie between 9:30 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 19, at the Apple Pie Contest tent at Nichols Field. There is no entry fee.
