(Dover, NH) - The 2017 WOKQ Apple Pie Contest is a little more than 2 weeks away, and I can't wait to taste this years entries!

This is my 19th year judging the contest, and to be truthful, I still have not found the "perfect pie".

My criteria is simple: I am looking for the same apple pie my grandmother used to bake.

The crust has to be flaky, the pie not too sweet or too tart, and it has to be made with apples, nothing else.

People have been creative in the past with currants, strawberries, lemon meringue and even bacon, but I am a purist at heart.  I want my grandmothers apple pie!

Just so you know, there are 3 other judges, all with their own likes and dislikes, and we all have a equal say in the contest.

The judging will take place at 11 am on Saturday, October 7th, Apple Harvest Day in Dover.
