This is the place for pie-in-the-sky dreams. The Herald-Mail is launching what we expect will be an annual pie contest. We're looking for some of the best pies in the area, and we will publish the most popular recipes in time for Christmas baking. The baker of the grand-prize winning pie will receive $100. Dessert pies only - no pizza pies or potpies. Entries must be a pie-shaped dessert with crust, except no cheesecakes. While Webster's New World College Dictionary includes layer cakes in the definition of pies, we're not accepting layer cakes nor are we accepting cheesecakes.
