The holidays are almost here! That crunching is the sound of Halloween just around the corner, leaves underfoot, and we know that the smell of baking pies and roasting turkeys will follow shortly. There will be plenty of holiday recipes here at The Kitchn, but we don't think that we have all the best recipes.
The Kitchn is giving you a slice of the pie action this year, so here's an advance heads up on our biggest baking contest yet! Starting in just a couple weeks we're going to be looking for the best pie you've got. It could be Grandma's pumpkin pie, Mom's whipped chocolate delight, Dad's shepherd pie, or your own very special original recipe.
We'll play along with pie crust recipes, tips on pie-making (it is, after all, one of the more intimidating parts of the holiday baking season for many new cooks), and more ways to make that pie the best it can be.
After all, gathering around a great pie is a cherished part of the holidays for most of us, and we believe that just about anyone can make one of those delicious desserts. What's your best pie ever? Show us, tell us, and make us believe it's the very best.
We'll have more information on entry, the prizes, and the rules in the coming weeks. Until then - get your pie ovens warmed up! We're looking for your best.
