Easy As Pie
(NAPSA) - Apple pie is a staple of pie contests. At the National Pie Championship, an annual competition for pie manufacturers from across the country, half of the top prizes Mrs. Smith's Bakeries received were for apple pies. First place went to Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Apple pie and No Sugar Added Apple found in grocers' freezers, and to Caramel Apple and Apple Raisin Walnut pies made for restaurants. Other winners included Pet Ritz Chocolate Drizzle, Coconut Custard, Soda Shoppe Coconut Cream and Banana Cream.
"Mrs. Smith's is known for its apple pies," said Gene Lewis, director of marketing. "Amanda Smith, who founded the company, developed a recipe for apple pie that can't be beat. We continue to make pies that deliver that same homemade taste."
