Pie by Sarah Weeks
When Alice's Aunt Polly, the Pie Queen of Ipswitch, dies, she takes the secret to her world-famous pie-crust recipe with her to the grave. Her will directs that the recipe be given to her extraordinarily fat, remarkably disagreeable cat Lardo... and that Lardo be cared for by her niece Alice. Soon, everyone in town is trying to be the next pie-contest winner. It's up to Alice and her friend Charlie to discover the secret to Polly's recipe.
