Baking Challenge

Mini Pies

Give your baked creation a name and tell us about your flavors. Also, what are you most proud of?

The Wisconsin Tree: apple, cheddar, and maple syrup. I am most proud of trying hot water crust pastry.

The key to this week’s challenge is your creative presentation. Describe your display.

I used a maple leaf tin for the leaves of the tree and a mini cake tin for the trunk of the tree. Then, I placed the leaf mini pies around the trunk of the tree.

It’s Wisconsin Week, so you need to showcase a super Wisconsin twist to your recipe and/or arrangement. Tell us about it.

I used Wisconsin cheddar cheese, Wisconsin maple syrup, and apples from my backyard!

How did you do?

It’s not pretty, but it’s edible.
