LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Linda Horton is picky about the ingredients in her prize-winning buttermilk pie. That's what led her to use a store-bought crust before dropping off her entry to be judged at the Kentucky State Fair.
Now that quest for the best may cost Horton the blue ribbon that her pie won.
Horton, 67, of Louisville, said Friday she just hasn't been successful making homemade pie crust.
"I tried and tried, but it either comes out too buttery and flaky and falls apart, or else it's hard," she said.
