A true Canadian pie story

Sophia & her winning pie

Imagine if you will a delicious pie recipe created in Saskatchewan in the 1950’s by Maggie’s Mom (Helen Patterson), being resurrected in Green Lake (1/2 an hour south east of 100 Mile House) this summer (2012) and just this weekend the same recipe winning a pie competition at the Metchosin Day Fall Fair 60 years later.  Sophia, my niece, decided to enter the pie contest at the local country fair. With the help of my Sour Cream Rhubarb Pie video and blog she made the pastry and the strawberry only filling (no fresh rhubarb available) and with her mom’s help (my sister Marie-Térèse) packaged it carefully up and headed for the fair. And this is the result of her baking efforts as told by her mom in an email;
Sophia received 3 ribbons for her Strawberry Sour Cream Pie at the Metchosin Day Fall Fair Pie competition today.

1. Best pie in category of entrants 11 years old and under
2. Best Berry Pie
3. Grand Prize (big blue ribbon) best in show -for the best of all pies in
any category.

Sophia modified her Auntie Miriam's Rhubarb sour cream pie recipe from

Ask me is I am the proudest Auntie in the world?  Congratulations Sophia…job well done!
