NW Central Ohio
My mother had promised the church she would bake an apple pie for a fund raising auction. The day before the auction (when she would have made the pie) she was hospitalized for arrhythmia and couldn't make it. All the fixings were on the counter...so I just gathered them up..made a crust and produced one of the most gorgeous crumb topped 10" apple pies you ever saw. So I took it to the ladies who were putting on the auction...and they were oooohing and ahhhhing over it...but I never let on I baked it! When they sold the damn thing...it sold for $65.00....but nobody seemed to remember who bought it! I laughed the whole way to the hospital when I went to tell my mother the story! Saturday I produced a nice peach pie....and am including a picture just so you can see the kind of work I do!...LOL! I'd say a good Apple/Peach/Grape/Blueberry/Cherry pie here is worth all of $15......But as far as cookies go?...I see one young entrepreneur who sells her decorated frosted cookies for $12/dozen! Home made isn't cheap these days!!!
