Easy as pie?
Some Girl Scouts from Bowling Green Cadette troop 10906 participated in a pie-baking contest last month. Each girl was to make a pie from scratch - crust and all.

Five of the seven girls in the troop participated,
Before this contest, none of the girls had ever made a pie from scratch, and a couple of the girls had never baked before, King said.
"Working around the kitchen was a new experience for some of the girls. The pie baking contest was meant to be a fun project, as well as, a new learning experience," she said.
