Victory ala Mode: Recipes from the First Annual South Side Pie Challenge

This collection comes from some of the entrants in the first annual South Side Pie Challenge held in Chicago this past November. While there has been a well-established apple pie contest for several years on the north side of the city, we felt the south side needed a showcase for its pies too, and we opened the doors wide to four types of pies: fruit, nut, crème, and sweet potato/pumpkin.

Fifty-two bakers brought us their best, and eight judges carefully considered them. We organizers were thrilled with the response we got to our call for bakers. The day of the Pie Challenge was a wonderful community gathering at a local grade school. Hundreds of folks came out to eat pie, helping us raise money for a good cause: $2000 for the Hyde Park/Kenwood Hunger Programs. Twenty-two of our entrants submitted their recipes for our e-book, which was prepared by Susan Carton.

We hope you enjoy perusing this collection and find some new favorites for your own family gatherings. Read more...

Cookbook Recipe
Cinnamon Apple Pie with Whole Wheat butter Crust by Peggy Sanders
Any variety of baking apple will work for pie; adjust the amount of sugar to accommodate the sweetness or tartness of the apples, and be generous with cinnamon!" I like to roll my crust thin to minimize the amount of crust

Yum Chocolate Pie by Andrew Howard
Yum to Second Prize in the Creme Pie Category. My sister made this for me a few years back, and I was blown away by how good it tasted and how little time it took her to make it. It works equally well with either a graham cracker crust or a flourcrust.

Not Your Average Apple Pie by Jessica Henning
Based off of Katie Aylsworth’s Zucchini Crisp My grandparents have a wonderful garden that produces a bounty of large zucchinis each year. These zucchinis always make it back from Michigan with me and have been the source of many delicious baked goods. This recipe is based off of a zucchini crisp my grandmother, Katie Aylsworth, created! A creative way to repurpose zucchinis! Happy Baking!

Cookbook Recipe
Parent's Pie, A Double Crust Peach Pie by Bethanie Smith
This is the recipe that was passed on from my maternal grandmother to my dad (her son-in-law). My grandmother's children have never learned how to bake- because my grandmother does not measure her ingredients- she just "eye balls" it and it is very difficult to get the recipes just right, so they are happy to allow her to bake all of the goodies! The following recipe is the best version that my dad has come up with while watching and assisting my grandmother in the kitchen.

Miss Sheila Clay I Love You Day Sweet Potato Pie
Miss Clay's pie took Third Place in the Pumkin/Sweet Potato Category. Please try to pick beautiful sweet potatoes not yams. Because sweet potatoes look real smooth, pretty with a few indentations of dots on them, and plump. In the palms of your lovely hands they will make you smile. Our sweet potatoes were eaten in the South by Slaves and reminded them of yams that they also ate from Africa on their journey. The African-American incorporated the sweet potato that is a part of our history. It is my healthy sweet potatoes that I enjoy and love on my journey.

Thank you for your interest in Susan Carton's cookbook and for helping support the BakeSpace community of independent cookbook authors!

Here’s some quick information regarding how our cookbook platform works, along with a few tips for making the most of cookbooks you add to your library.

But first… If you’re new to BakeSpace, take a minute to visit our "About" page to learn more about our delicious community, which has been helping home cooks swap recipes and connect with fellow foodies worldwide since 2006.

What is the Cookbook Café Platform?

Cookbook Café is our one-of-a-kind cookbook publisher, marketplace and reader. It empowers everyone to create, market and distribute a cookbook as both a web-based eBook and an iPad app. It also makes it incredibly easy for home cooks to discover and use amazing grassroots cookbooks they won't find anywhere else. Since 2012, we've published thousands of cookbooks authored by home chefs, nonprofit organizations, clubs, brands, etc. Our goal is to democratize cookbook publishing and make it easy to build an online library of amazing grassroots cookbooks.

How do I "download" a cookbook?

You don't need to "download" cookbooks or deal with any files. All of the cookbooks you select (free and paid) using Cookbook Café become available to you automatically on any device (computer, tablet or smartphone) whenever you’re logged-in to your free BakeSpace account.

When you see a cookbook you like, simply click the green "Get it Now" button. If you're not logged in to BakeSpace, you'll be asked to login (or join) so the cookbook can be added to your cookbook library. Once in your library, you can access the cookbook anytime, anywhere via BakeSpace.com, as well as our Cookbook Café iPad app.

While you're checking out cookbooks, also take some time to visit other parts of the delicious BakeSpace.com community where you can swap recipes and connect with others who share your passion for food and the culinary lifestyle.

Get ready to enjoy a uniquely smart and social cookbook experience!

Once a cookbook is added to your BakeSpace library, our proprietary recipe indexing technology makes it easy for you to find any specific recipe across all of your cookbooks… so there's no need to remember which cookbook contains that perfect recipe. In addition, you can connect directly with each cookbook author, leave comments/reviews and even ask questions about recipe substitutions, history, etc.

Need more info/help or want to provide some feedback?

We're happy to help! Send us an email to cookbooks@bakespace.com.

I’d love to make my own cookbook - how do I do that?

Pie Among Friends: Recipes from the Second Annual South Side Pie Challenge

FREE

These recipes are from the Second Annual South Side Pie Challenge. Our second event had fewer entrants than last year but just as many pie fans in attendance, and we were able to raise $1500 for the Hyde Park/Kenwood Hunger Programs. The Pie Challenge has taken on the feel of a tradition already, and the neighbors who came out to eat pie and support the Hunger Programs have become friends and collaborators. Once again wonderful musicians donated their talents, friends created beautiful decorations, and Girl Scouts served pie--pie in diverse, gorgeous abundance. New types on the table this year included peanut butter pie, green rhubarb pie, and Shaker lemon pie filled with lemon slices. We invite you to peruse our entrants' recipes and try many of them out! We think you will be as impressed as we were with the fine pies that graced our Pie Challenge tables this year. -- Julie Vassilatos, South Side Pie Challenge Organizer Look for South Side Pie Challenge updates at facebook.com/South Side Pie Challenge and southsidepie.wordpress.comnizer. -
