I had never entered a state or county fair and was encouraged to do so. So I entered the 'Govenors Pie Contest' with this yummy pie.(The governor was not the judge). I wanted to make it special so added chocolate and cashews instead of pecans or walnuts. I almost fell out of my chair when they announced that I was the first place winner. I was shocked and stunned! It was our wedding anniversary and that made the day even that much more special. My husband and family were so proud and pleased and I was just tickled pink. Not in my wildest dreams did I ever think I even had a chance to win.
Cashews are one of my favorite nuts. And putting them in a pie with chocolate? WOW! This one is definitely a winner.
