BOONSBORO - Nine years ago Janet Rohrer had never made a pie. She had tried making one in high school and became discouraged after she couldn't roll the dough. When it was becoming too difficult for her mother, Katherine Rohrer, now 86, to roll dough to make special-order pies for the Shepherdstown Farmers Market, Rohrer, 58, learned how to make a pie by watching. Her pies have become a hit with large orders around the holidays, and she was awarded a champion ribbon for best open-class pie at last year's Washington County Ag Expo for her Bumble Berry Pie. The pie contains blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and apples.
