Pie bakers to vie for title


Can you bake a cherry pie? Or a cream pie?

Then dig out grandma’s favorite recipe and enter the Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce’s pie-baking contest Saturday, Sept. 19, at North Dam Park during Harvest Festival.

No store-bought crusts or fillings here. This is the real McCoy!

Pie organizer, Darla Orr, said it’s simple: Make two pies — one for the judges to taste and the other to auction off — and get them to the pie booth by 11 a.m. that Saturday.

There will be prizes for the winners and their extra pies will be auctioned off around 1 p.m. Orr said if you would like to bake a pie just to sell, then just drop it off at the booth. Proceeds go to benefit the Senior Meals and Home-Delivery program.

Five judges will do the tasting and will vote, with winners announced around 1 p.m. Saturday.

So if you can bake a cherry (or any fruit) pie or a cream pie, take them to the pie booth at North Dam Park.

Pie slices will sell for $2 a slice, whole pies for $10.

And good luck to the pie contestants.
