American classic apple pies alongside many more varieties filled two tables before they were judged and auctioned off as part of the pie baking contest and auction at the Allen County Fair.
In total, 20 pies were judged in three categories: single, double and lattice crust. Pies were evaluated on crust texture, appearance and filling taste. Many were made Tuesday, though some were baked Wednesday morning and were still warm when the judges sampled them that afternoon.
Top pies netted $50, and all profits from the event benefit the Allen County Fairgrounds Building Fund.
