Welty Environmental Center Fall Fest Pie Contest

This year my church friend Mark told me about a pie contest at the Welty Environmental Center in Beloit, WI. I was excited to meet fellow local pie bakers and to practice my apple pie. I made about four trips to the Apple Hut to buy freshly grown fall apples. I found that they had a local variety that was perfect for baking. They were a little sweet and kept their shape when baked.

So this morning Robert and I took the pie to the center and we returned for judging at 12:30pm. When we came back we found that I was the only person that had submitted a pie. This was a surprise to me because when I spoke with Mark about it, his stories made it should like there were multiple entries in previous years.

I'm not complaining because I won! lol But it was fun to watch everyone eat my pie. I got a ton of compliments and I was sad I couldn't have a slice. I will most definitely do this again next year, and I will help to promote the contest.

This is a photo of one of the practice pies.
