Today's Most Interesting Tidbit is a True Penna Specialty.

I am proud to announce to you, dear readership, the winner of this year's annual Stolzfuss & Distlefink Shoefly Pie Bake-Off: Herr Josh Brown, blue ribbon winner in the Wet-Bottom Pie Category.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comThe careful attention to crust detail and perfectly balanced molasses wet-bottom-ness is what gave Brown the edge over the competition.

Sources suggest that the recipe for this particular pie is kept strictly 'unter Lock und Key', requiring manipulation of a magic decoder ring to ascertain content written in "Dutchie" dialect. Uniquely, the recipe makes minimally two pies and halving the ingredients to make only one pie is highly discouraged. Besides, adds Brown, "as my mom said, why would you ever only want to bake ONE pie?"
