Soon after the release of PIE AS ART on July 10, the photos and comments have started rolling in from experienced and beginner bakers trying out recipes in the book! I have been so pleased to see everyone enjoying getting their hands a little dirty in the kitchen and conquering their fears of making pie crust.
Maybe we can all make something positive about this crazy pandemic and throw ourselves into being creative in the kitchen! I cannot think of a better way to spend extra time than cooking for the ones I love. How about you?
So, I thought it might be a fun idea for PIE AS ART, volume 1, cookbook fans to offer up a little competition to see who can bake the most beautiful pie using a recipe from the Pie Baker Lady. The prize is a FREE autographed copy of the cookbook. The judging will be by yours truly (a seasoned pie contest judge).
So grab your new PIE AS ART book, gather some beautiful fresh ingredients and get baking! I cannot wait to see what you all come up with. This should be a fun distraction during the pandemic! Oh, and if you don't own a book yet, they are available through the STORE on the Pie Baker Lady website (wink, wink).
Here are a few of the early contenders...
Cruising in with an early lead.... Amy bakes two pies in one weekend! Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake and Peach Pan Pie. She also gets points for posing the cookbook with the pies! I am impressed!
Ross gets points for sending me the first pie baked out of the cookbook! He made a crab quiche and experimented with a gluten free crust... impressive!
Rhonda and Fred get points for a very pretty slice of blackberry pie topped with vanilla ice cream! Looks good enough to lick the computer screen! Ha... ha...
I wish all you pie competitors Good Luck on your baking adventures. Let's put a deadline of September 8 to send me your photos. Feel free to email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, text photos to my phone at (816) 914-8791 to enter the contest. Follow my Pie Baker Lady FaceBook page to see updates on contest entries.
Pie Love you!!!
