Cutie Pies : Please Help Me Pick The Photo

Once again, Blogger stinks.  Does anyone have a solution to getting scheduled posts to actually remain scheduled instead of magically changing to Draft?  This was scheduled to post earlier but alas, Blogger has a mind of its own...

OK so I am entering a local apple contest on our local NBC affiliate website.  I have no earthly idea why it is suddenly important to me as I am not at all a competitive person.  But I saw the announcement for it a few weeks ago and I can't seem to let it go.  Dumb, I know.  But I am entering all the same. 

Oh and to explain, I made little gluten free apple pies (though they could of course just as easily be regular gluten full) in tiny ball canning jars.  Single serve apple pies.  Or as I am calling them, cutie pies.  And you can freeze them before cooking if you want to have them on hand to just bake a pie or two at a time on a cold fall evening. (Which we have yet to have around here- it's been hot and humid.  But I must assume fall will actually come so a girl is getting herself prepared.  With pie.)

But it seems I can only submit one photo.  My camera is still broken so I only ever use my blackberry.  And I didn't spend much time fussing over these pies as is clear from the images.  I did throw a piece of fabric under them- that's about as fancy as I get these days.  But they are darn tootin tasty. 

So please tell me which photo looks the best of the three below.  I again admit this is silly but I am entering the contest anyway so I might as well put forth a bit of effort, right?

Photo 3


OK so I decided I liked photo #3 but that fabric jar not having a ribbon around it was driving me nuts.  Yes, my friends, I am a grosgrain-aholic.  So I took two seconds to re-stage this little photo shoot and this is what I cam up with and submitted.  Thanks for all of your sweet comments!  Don't be offended that I changed my mind.  I'm a girl and it's my right to add ribbons!

See...everything is better with a little ribbon detail!

i vote for photo #3!
i wish i could help with your blogger schedule problem... that has never happened to me. are you sure that you are hitting publish and not just save?

Thanks Barb!

And they are scheduled. I double check and they still say scheduled. Then...they switch to draft on their own. No idea why as it doesn't always happen. No rhyme or reason as far as I can see.

I vote 2! The white one in the third photo confuses me. I like how the perspective in the 2nd one show's their size and yummy tops. Good luck!

Photo #3

This shows that you can make them mini - or maybe a little bigger and still be able to freeze them.
