Apple Pie Contest

By a Taddlegraph Staff Writer

There can be no denying that winter is cold, and there can be no denying that nothing warms you up quite like apple pie. Yes, Taddletown’s annual Apple Pie Contest was held in the Town Hall yesterday. This year there were over 400 entries, in the traditional four categories.

As always the judging panel was lead by our mayor, Morris Morys, who said “The standard is always very high, but this year it is even higher. I may have to loosen my belt by a notch or two by the time this is all over!” After several rounds of judging, when all five of the judges carefully sampled all of the entries, the prizes were awarded as follows.

Best Apple Pie Henry Ainsworth, marmalade cat
Best Apple Crumble Elizabeth Jones
Best Apple Dumpling Mrs Wilkinson
Freestyle Roger the Rotweiller
