Baking Challenge

Hand-Raised Pie

Give your pie a name based on the ingredients and decoration.

Cheese and Crackers, Brats and Packers… AKA Wisconsin Poutine Pie

Tell us about your proudest moment – or humble failure – in this week’s baking challenge.

This was a real leap of faith, having never made a hand-raised pie or hot water crust. It tasted amazing, but how can one go wrong with a flaky, crispy crust wrapped around Wisconsin goodness?

Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

I made a Wisconsin-inspired poutine to layer inside my pie. Layers of Klement's brats parboiled in Capital Brewery Supper Club beer, Nueske's bacon, Shullsburg Creamery cheese curds, onions, and a bacon-cheddar gravy. It tasted like a night at Miller Park!

How did you do?

Rocked it.
