For anyone who’s afraid to make a pie, meet Scottsdale resident Kelly Sallaway. She baked her pie last week in her 1967 Sunray electric range with no features except an on and off dial. But as Kelly likes to say, “it’s not the wand, it’s the wizard,” and she won First Place and Grand Prize for her double crusted peach pie. Her entry, with a secret “spirited” ingredient in the crust, beat out dozens of cream, nut, and fruit pies in the Pie It Forward contest sponsored by Palo Verde Outreach benefiting veterans via Fischer House and Honor Flight. An Arizona native, Kelly’s baking inspiration comes in part from her grandfather, who settled in Arizona in the 1930’s as a pastry chef, and who cooked for movie stars and presidents in the Hollywood Dude Ranch heyday at the San Marcos in Chandler. Kelly has graciously given up her prize-winning recipe so that we can pie it forward ourselves! It is absolutely peachy and here it is, her own words!
