LANGLEY — With a mouthwatering creation called the "Mile High Peach Pie," Emily Bain of Oak Harbor won this year's 4-H pie contest at the Island County Fair.

Emily, 14, of Oak Harbor, was named grand champion for her refrigerator pie. Her pie was best in a field that included two kinds of avocado pies and a humble pie. The judges said the fresh and tasty pieces of peach in Emily's pie made her dessert the winner.

"I was like, wow! I didn't expect it," Emily said.

She said the recipe was a variation on a strawberry pie her grandmother had tried at a cooking event. Emily substituted peaches for the strawberries.
