Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner!!

So I finally can let you all know which pie was the winner of the Great Pie Bake off!  Sorry it took so long but, with surgery and the holidays it was bound to happen.  So here are the top five pies.

In 5th place- Amy of Social Studies Momma Apple Pie with Buttermilk Crust

I seriously loved this pie, it was really, really great and not runny at all which can be a problem with apple pies.  I would make this again any day, and I’m normally not an apple pie person, but this pie changed my mind.

In 4th place- Emily & Jaime @ Everyday Art

Pear Plum Pie

This was personally my favorite pie of the competition, I LOVED IT! I would recommend making it and soon, it has definitely made it into my personal cookbook, of things to make over and over again.

In 3rd place- Sharon @ This Thrifty House. Chocolate Magic Mousse Pie

There is nothing not to love about this pie, it’s easy and yummy and I will definitely be making it again!  Plus if you don’t want to make a crust you can just serve the mousse in a cup all by itself.  So awesome!

In 2nd place- Stephanie’s

 Chocolate Peanut Butter pie

Chocolate and peanut butter a match made in heaven! And that is definitely what you get when you eat this pie, a little slice of heaven.  I loved that this was a frozen pie, it adds a little ice-cream quality to the pie that puts it over the top. Well done Stephanie!

In1st place-.

Pumpkin Pudding Pie

Well this is the pie that took the grand prize and the $25.00 gift certificate!  It’s super fast and easy to make and it was half of the judges favorite pie, (probably why it won Smile ).  So if your craving a little pumpkin pie around the holidays and don’t want to go to all the trouble of making one, or if you don’t have the patience to wait for it to come out of the oven this is a great alternative and a great recipe! So Congratulations!

Now as you know personal preference goes a long why in deciding what a person likes. For instance, I am a fruit pie person, I would choose a warm fruit pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream over any other pie, any day.  And I wouldn’t touch a pumpkin pie with a ten foot pole. So I thought I would give a shout out to those pies that ranked first for some of the judges that didn’t make it into the top five pies and they are

Luscious Lemon Pie

Millionaire Pie

Nestle Pie

Also because I’m the owner of this blog, and the maker of all of those pies I’m going to give you my top five pies, and you will see what I mean about being a fruit pie person.  Though I have to admit that both of the chocolate pies that made it into the top five, I would eat those again anytime both were suburb, delicious, sublime!! Please can I have some more-tastic!

So there you have it, the results of the pie competition.  It was a really close battle pie #2 & 3 were only separated by 3 hundredths of a point!! and the top pie only won by 1 point.  So very exciting. I had a great time making the pies, and I hope you had a fun time watching.  Well that’s it until next November when the pies start rolling out again!!
