Pie Season Has Arrived



Pumpkin pie, the iconic topper to a tummy full of Thanksgiving feast, and a true marker that the holiday season has arrived.

In my years of attempting to create the prefect Turkey Day desert, I've learned that the keys are a handmade crust—light, flakey and especially buttery—and the perfect spice profile to balance the sweet filling. In my experience, doubling the spices recommended by most recipes will do it, a trick I learned from my grandmother—queen of deserts—who has made me my own personal pumpkin pie (with a side of hand-whipped whip cream) almost every Thanksgiving to take home after the meal.

Lucky for me, this holiday season I'm working for the Source where my co-workers love pie more than your average newspaper staff.

So we're hosting a Pie Off, where YOU bake and our panel of judges chooses the GREATEST PIE IN CENTRAL OREGON!

Mmmmm pies.
  • Mmmmm pies.

The first step is to submit your recipe to us.
Pie-Off/ 704 NW Georgia/ Bend, OR 97701
Or, by email: pie@bendsource.com
Deadline: Wednesday, November 6 @ 5 pm

Then, we will choose three winners who will bake off at our Media Salon at Broken Top Bottle Shop on November 11th, at 7 pm. The person who bakes the best pie will receive tickets to Jazz at the Oxford, bragging rights and the title of GREATEST PIE IN CENTRAL OREGON.

Join the event of FaceBook here, and submit you recipes.
