Apple lovers bake 600-lb. apple pie

Posted: Updated:

The Nappanee Apple Festival in Indiana is underway and boasts an apple pie fit for a giant.

A 7-foot wide apple pie weighed-in around 600 pounds.  It took volunteers more than four hours to make it.

"Who can say that you helped make the largest apple pie in the state of Indiana?” asked Mim Hartman, Chief Pie Maker.  “It is exciting, and not everybody gets this opportunity.  We have to make sure that we are all organized."

The pie included 100 pounds of dough, 16 bushels of apples and dozens of eggs, among other ingredients.  Volunteers said the reward is seeing the surprise on everyone's face and of course eating it.  The huge pie will be served up Friday morning.
