I’ll have a meringue…and a cigarette, please

​Kansas City has a long, sweet history when it comes to dessert, dating back to the amazing selection of pies and puddings served at the old Harvey House restaurant in Union Station before World War I. In the 1900s, the legendary Unity Inn — a vegetarian restaurant at Ninth and Tracy — was as famous for its buttermilk pie, apple dumplings and bread pudding as it was for its nut loaf.

In honor of Kansas City’s tradition of great desserts, we bring you a new contest. The commenter who correctly answers all five questions by noon tomorrow, Friday, April 16, will win a vintage cookbook, The Joys of Jello.

Be warned: This contest is a hard one.
