National Pie Championship Airs on Sunday

Calling all pie bakers! This Sunday, hang up your aprons and snuggle up on the couch for a night of delicious TV when the Food Network broadcasts its premiere of the 2008 APC Crisco National Pie Championships

Sunday, September 21st
8 PM, Eastern, Pacific Times
7 PM, Central Time

The show will have additional airings, so if you miss Sunday, check here for alternative times.
Or, if you’re like me and you despise having television on in your house, here’s an even better idea: Host your own Pie Baking Contest!
To do this, buy Barbara Swell’s fabulous book, The Lost Art of Pie Making Made Easy in which she gives you step-by-step instructions for contest set-up, from costume ideas to prize categories. You can get a sneak peak at some her pages on Google Books, but you’ll love her writing so much you’ll want your very own copy.
