The Daisy Flour Pie Baking Contest, held yesterday at the Brooklyn Kitchen was a fabulous event, and it was truly exciting to just how many accomplished pie bakers are around. There were several super imaginative entries -- a frozen watermelon pie and one called chubby hubby that had pretzels arranged on top. And I don't believe that there were two pies alike. They ranged from coconut cream to blackberry, and beyond. The only rules were that entrants had to use Daisy pastry flour and that the pie be a sweet, not savory, one.
|Pies on parade. There were about 40 entries.|
