    Who won in the kid's category?

    • evankleiman

      We didn't think kids needed to be judged in that way. All are winners. The fact that they cooked on their own is amazing and worthy. They each got a specially designed Pie Merit Badge.

    Congratulations to all winners! I only wish I had tasted the Banana toasted coconut pie. Looked and sounds delicious.

    OMG – I am now obsessed with pies. I am anxious to create my own pie creation with the bushel of apples I just picked up from the community garden share I belong to in Brooklyn, NY. Hope to have an entry in the contest next year. Thanks Evan for the pie inspiration!
