Jenny Harding, For TSM

Over the weekend, my wife and I had the opportunity to be judges for the Art of the Tart cherry pie baking contest at the Cherry Pie Celebration in Downtown Loveland. It's harder than it sounds.

We had 13 pies in the adult competition and 3 youth pies to judge. We judged each pie on appearance, top crust, bottom crust, filling, taste, and overall impression.
