Suburban Journal Article with Picture of Margaret with Her Winning Pie!
Yes, it's true, dear readers. Your favorite Cranky Cook won second place in the Clayton Farmer's Market Pie Baking Contest on Saturday. I used the French Lemon Cream we had at the reunion, with the ginger snap crust, but this time I put these gorgeous local blackberries on top, which had macerated over night, and then I reduced the resulting juice (adding some seedless blackberry jam to give it a little more sheen) and drizzled that over the top. It was kinda yummy. I won a tour or the market with the market master, and $25 to spend there (first price was $50).
