Introduction: How to Enter the Pie Contest

Pies are wonderful treats that can be made hundreds and thousands of deliciously different ways and we want to see yours. Submit your favorite pies to the Pie Contest to win a hardcover copy of The Pie and Pastry Bible and an Instructables Robot t-shirt!

Pies can be tricky to make so show us the steps of the process. We want to see your tips for making the crust and see how the filling is prepared and everything else. Finish off with a mouth-watering picture of the result to make everyone want to make it and eat it as well!

    Hey, the OFFICIAL RULES state that August 18th is the cut-off date so I got some sleep last night and submitted my entry this morning. It's AWESOME! AND IRONIC HEALTHY CHOCOLATE BROWNIE PIE MADE WITH XOCAI CHOCOLATE AND RASPBERRY/BLACKBERRIES AND COOL WHIP. I CALL IT LIFE BY CHOCOLATE (instead of Death by Chocolate, get it?) So, am I too late, cause that would be sad, not just for me, but for those who love chocolate anything and want to make this scrumptious concoction. peace zipperup

    Actually, no. The second prize is really the judges prize so it's decided by Instructables staff and not by users. I changed the title here to make it clearer.
