"Waiting for Wausaukee" Lime Chiffon Meringue Pie

Any disasters? Did you take any risks? Proudest moment? Lessons learned the hard way? Tell us about it.

First time making pie crust. Joy of Cooking recommended beginners use more water for the crust but it came out flakey. I had to make the meringue twice, but second time I nailed it.

How did you add a Wisconsin twist to your flavors or decoration?

Each summer we take our big vacation in the north woods near Wausaukee, Wisconsin, where the pie, cake and cookie consumption is legendary.

How did you do?

Pleasantly satisfied.
