At the 23rd annual National Pie Championships earlier this month, Three Brothers Bakery out of Houston, Texas took home the award for Best Key Lime Pie in the Commercial Division.
The competition, held May 5-6 in Orlando, Florida, was part of the American Pie Council’s annual event.
Bringing pie makers together since 1995, the National Pie Championships celebrates a beloved American treat and honors those that dedicate their baking skills to creating award-winning pastry treasures. It is open to amateur pie makers, professional bakers, and commercial pie manufacturers throughout the country and Canada.
“This award recognizes all the of the hard work our bakery team does all year. Our Key Lime Pie is light, tart and the perfect summer dessert, especially here in Houston,” says Bobby Jucker, bakery co-owner and fifth generation baker. “We are thankful to our bakery team and the American Pie Council for recognizing the great work of bakeries across the country.”
470 pies were submitted by 22 bakeries in the commercial division of the 2017 APC National Pie Championships. You can see the full list of winners in all National Pie Championship divisions here.
