December 14th, 2009 - Theme: Holiday Celebration Pies!

Get your oven mitts ready & prepare to bake your holiday best!

You are cordially invited to join us for the The Great Big Pie Bake-Off as we dazzle family, friends and guests this season with Holiday Celebration Pies! Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year's Eve, National Egg Nog Day (Dec. 24th), or even Humbug Day (Dec. 21st), we want you to participate.

Here's how to play: If you're a blogger and love to bake, why not try your hand at a Holiday Celebration Pie? Simply bake your special pie, then post the recipe & photos to your blog on Dec. 14th. After posting your pie on your blog, remember to come back here and share the direct link to your pie's post (we're looking into adding a Mr. Linky's Widget to help us keep track of all the tasty entries). It really is that simple (and no registration or previous participation required).

Pie pro or pie novice, we can't wait to see what you come up get those pie plates out and get ready to show the world your holiday best with Holiday Celebration Pies on Dec. 14th, 2009!

October 29th, 2009 Theme - Spooky Halloween Pies

What began as 5 bloggers uniting for a shared love of pies and an appreciation for the the film Waitress is now becoming a monthly event - The Great Big Pie Bake-Off - and YOU'RE invited to play along!

If you fancy pies and love to bake, this event is for you! Here's how to join us:

Each month, we'll be announcing a new theme and a new date for posting our pie creations. For October, the theme is Spooky Halloween Pies and we'll be posting on October 29th, 2009.

If you have a blog and want to play along, simply make a Spooky Halloween Pie and feature it on your blog on (or around) October 29th, then come back here and post the name of your pie (making sure to include the direct link to your pie's blog post) in the comment section of this post. That way, everyone who visits The Great Big Pie Bake-Off will have access to each participant's special creation.

Sound easy? It is! But the witching season is fast approaching, so search your favorite recipes, scare up a spooky idea, and get ready to go batty in the kitchen. We've got Spooky Halloween Pies to bake and blog!

Be sure to check back for updates and again on the 29th to see what pies will be haunting our tables this Halloween!

To leave a link to your Halloween-themed pie, choose the name/URL option in the comment form below, and include the direct link to your pie post in the URL box. Easy. As. Pie!
