Question
I have to make 2 pies for our upcoming fall festival. I need to know what type of pies would be ok to leave outside at the festival for several hours. From the hours of 5PM till around 9PM.

Thank you in advance!
Lynn

Answer
Hi Lynn,

Any fruit-based pie without dairy would be a great pie for the festival.  Apple, cherry, peach, blueberry, strawberry, etc would be just fine without refrigeration. Avoid taking any cream pies (coconut cream, chocolate cream, pumpkin, or lemon meringue) and fruit pies that have a layer of cream cheese.

Have fun at the festival!
