Cherry Pie

Give your pie a clever name – and tell us about your crust and filling.

Traditional WI Cherry Pie. I make lard shortened crust and used Wisconsin cherries grown and picked in LAFAYETTE County! As the lard was from a pig also grown in Lafayette County – this is a truly local foods pie.

Was your pie underbaked, overbaked or just right? What was your favorite part of the process?

It was perfect – evenly browned, no run-over, and delicious! I’d say eating it was the best.

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

All local Wisconsin ingredients.

How did you do?

Absolutely lovely.
