I entered the Palos Verdes Estates Fourth of July Apple Pie Contest and –believe it or not– I won first place! Out of a field of 20 pies, my crumble crust topped stunner was the winner. I humbly submit the following photos:(okay, maybe not so humbly):The first place prize was this Golden Dorsett Apple Tree, pictured above. I also won a certificate good for a Marie Callender’s apple pie, since they were the ones who sponsored the event along with Bennett Landscaping and the PVE Homes Association. Thank you, sponsors!
