"Calling all Bakers…
Time to bake a pie! The humble apple will be the focus of the largest Apple Pie Baking Contest on Long Island to be held in conjunction with the 31st annual Long Island Apple Festival on Sunday, Sept. 27th at the Sherwood-Jayne Farm, 55 Old Post Road, Setauket.
Contestants will have the chance to show off their favorite family recipes and participate in an old-fashioned, state fair-type competition. The event is sponsored by Preservation Long Island, Benner's Farm and Homestead Arts.
For a pie to be admitted into the contest on the day of the festival, participants must submit the required online 2020 Apple Pie Contest Application by 4:00 pm on Saturday, September 26, 2019. Only registered apple pie contest participants will be permitted to submit a pie for the contest on the day of the festival.
Entries must be traditional apple pies only. The pie, including crust, must be homemade by amateur bakers. Pies must be on the contest table at the Sherwood-Jayne House by 10:30 a.m. on the day of the festival. A written recipe must be submitted with each entry including the name and address of the baker. Each contestant will receive one free Apple Festival entry.
Judging will begin at 2 p.m. with prizes awarded at 3 p.m. followed by photos at 4 p.m. First, second and third place winners will be announced for Best Tasting Pie. A fourth prize will be awarded for Most Beautiful Pie.
All pies and baking dishes are considered donations to the Long Island Apple Festival and will be auctioned at the Apple Pie Auction following the contest.
All winners will receive an award prize. The first-place winner will be invited to be a judge at next year’s Apple Pie Baking Contest.
