kcrw pie contest. 2015.
So, I finally decided (committed to) entering KCRW’s 7th annual Good Food Pie Contest at the Fowler Museum at UCLA on Sunday, October 4th, 2015. We didn’t win, but it was fun as hell.
First, I ordered (2) 10″ pie pans from amazon. Then I signed up for the contest online, paying the $15 entrance fee (last day of registration, of course). I was committed.

My brother asked me to bake a blueberry pie for his birthday dinner…I took a few liberties, inspired by the successful Cherry Almond Torte.

Memorial Day is a month away, and I am starting to think about pies and tarts. I first made this (recipe is from Food52.com) a couple of years ago, and not only has it become a summer dessert staple, but it has inspired a blueberry version that is far less time-consuming. For July 4th or Memorial Day, consider using star shaped cookie cutters.
