This is one little thing they can do something about. It's pretty frustrating when there are so many important things about which one can do virtually nothing.
I've never understood when people have the attitude that everything fun or not important in the big picture should stop because there are far worse things happening in the world. Are the pie judges supposed to say "we'll throw out the rules because the world is going to heck in a hand basket". I also don't want all the news to be grim happenings all over the world. I welcome some light hearted reporting of an old lady going rogue with her pie, causing an uproar in a state fair
I snagged the recipe and put it in my Google Drive, if it won first prize, it's gotta be good. In solidarity to this lady, I'll make it in a Pillsbury crust!
