When I went apple picking this fall I made a rogue claim in the office that I make the best apple pie. Once it ricocheted like the shot heard round the world, I had a couple challengers and we scheduled a holiday-time throwdown. I was pretty confident in my recipe, but limited my trash talking just in case. The day finally came and I made 2 pies... just so I could take a bite when they were fresh out of the oven. It was one of my best! (My secret ingredient is crushed gingersnaps, shhhh!)
We set up a blind test with scorecards and everything! Ha! Once the ballots were tallied, I was crowned the winner. I knew I made the best apple pie!
