Joyce Purdin of Atascadero was the grand prize winner

The 31st annual Idler’s Home “Mom & Apple Pie Contest” finals were held at the SLO Home Show at the Madonna Expo Center over the weekend.

A panel of local judges picked the best pie based on a 100-point scale. Crusts were examined for appearance, finished edges and flavor. Pie fillings were judged on consistency, apple doneness and flavor. Bakers entered one 8-inch pie, made at home, and taken to the home show on competition day.

Atascadero resident Joyce Purdin was the grand prize winner, taking home a new KitchenAid stainless steel range, valued at more than $2,000.

Second place, and a KitchenAid standup mixer, went to Susan Sheetz of Santa Maria.

Brigid Rickard of Templeton came in third and won a new KitchenAid microwave.

Nine others went home with a hand mixer.
