Pies are one of the country's most popular desserts. Today, we're going to show you how you can use apps to create a pie that might just win you a pie baking contest!
Pies are a favorite dessert for many to eat and to bake. If you are planning to enter a pie contest, the first thing you will need is to look for some delicious recipes to try out. Not only will you have to find pie recipes, but you'll also want to find filling and crust recipes. Whether you are baking an apple, peach, blueberry or another type of pie, you can ask your mother or grandmother if they have a favorite pie recipe that they want to hand down, as long as you share the credit if you win, or you can go on an app like Tastely to get inspiration and then give it your own touch.
Once you know what kind of pie you're going to bake, the next thing you need to do is go out and get your ingredients. Some of the best produce you can buy will be the locally grown fruit you can find at the farmer's market. Not only are you buying quality fresh fruit, but you'll also be helping out the local economy. When you are competing against other people, you want to use the best ingredients possible. Make sure you get enough ingredients to make a few pies so that you can perfect your recipe before the contest. An app such as Out Of Milk can help you make sure that you have everything you need.
Now that you have your ingredients, it's time to start baking. Depending on the type of pie you're making, you are going to have a few options for the decoration on top and the sides. You might want a fluted edge, a braided edge, a roped edge, or another type. Try out the recipes and ask people you know to try the pie, asking for their honest opinions. After all, you want to wow the judges and having friends and family tell you that they love it to spare your feelings won't help. Give yourself time before the contest to practice the recipe and make sure it's perfect. Also, take pictures of your pies and get opinions on how they look from people who aren't close enough to taste them. One of our Photo Sharing apps will help you get your pictures to the right people. When you take your time to be creative and make your pie look and taste as good as possible, you'll have a good chance of winning.
