It has been discovered recently that there is a deficit of pie in Jersey City.
Grace Church Van Vorst, which is not too far from my home, is having a pie-baking contest on November 5.
I've never made a pie, and I wouldn't really know where to start. But Michael Kraiger can make a pie.
I cannot exactly issue a challenge to Michael Kraiger, because his pies would wipe the floor with my pies. But perhaps if they grade on a curve, my pies would make his pies look better. If someone out there can tell me how to make a not-too-embarrassing pie, I could enter this throwdown and at least help him look good. Or if I can't look good, at least I could look silly. Does a Ritz Cracker mock-apple pie count?
