Winners of the 2019 Thanksgiving Pie Contest

We don’t envy the job our judges had! With 11 entries, ranging from pudding cream pies, to still-hot-from-the-oven apple pies, they ALL were delicious! (Thank goodness for the tasting social where everyone got to try them all!)

Thank you to our judges Laura Thornton, Crystal Lopez, Cindy Melendez, and Michael Shuttleworth. Judges used a standard scoring system for each pie, assigning points based on overall attractiveness, crust, filling, and taste, with a perfect score being 25 points.

And the winners are….

1st Place – Fruit Pie

Apple Pie by Jennifer Fountain (19.5 points)

1st Place – Chocolate or Custard Pie

Chocolate Bourbon Walnut Pie by B’s Family Diner (15.75 points)
