LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Louisville woman whose prize-winning recipe for buttermilk pie featured a store-bought crust has lost her blue ribbon.

The Courier-Journal (https://cjky.it/1tpsEK9 ) says Kentucky State Fair officials stripped the blue ribbon Linda Horton was awarded at the fair last month.

State fair culinary director Steve Lee told the newspaper in an email the entry was disqualified and the ribbon withdrawn because the 67-year-old Horton’s use of a commercial pie crust went against the rules.

Horton said earlier she used the store-bought crust because her own homemade crust doesn’t turn out right and she wasn’t aware of the rule. The newspaper said Thursday she didn’t return phone messages.

The issue came to Lee’s attention after the newspaper published winning recipes and people asked whether a store-bought crust was permissible for fair entries.
