Editor's note:The Herald-Mail's pie contest for 2009 has been canceled.
Cherry pie. Apple pie. Coconut pie. Pecan pie - a personal favorite, but we're not judging the contest, so don't think that will help you.
It's time for The Herald-Mail's third annual pie contest.
This year's winner of the pie contest will receive $50.
Dessert pies only - no pizza pies or potpies. No cheesecakes. Entries must be a pie-shaped dessert with crust.
Pies will be judged on taste, appearance, originality of the recipe and overall quality. The submitted pie should be a regular-sized pie so there is enough for the judges to sample.
Contest entries will be accepted at The Herald-Mail, 100 Summit Ave., in Hagerstown from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 9, only. We have a refrigerator if pies need to be kept cold though fridge space can fill up fast. If your pie requires refrigeration, you might want to bring it later in the day, just to be safe. The judges will convene that evening to taste the entries.
