Pioneer sent a sheet with the winners names for the pie contest, and the recipe from the guy who won first place. Yes, a guy won. The recipe is totally bogus, no doubt he bought a pie at Grandma's and made up the recipe. Must have been Affirmative Action at work in pie baking! Things that jumped out: he only used 2 T of shortening for the crust, and he didn't mix in the sugar and spices - just dumped them in separately on top of the apples after they were in the bottom crust! Also the apples are listed as the orchard name, "Bowman," no specific type. So Red Delicious would be fine? C'mon.
