Baking Challenge

American Pie

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


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

I've never used mint in a pie before and this experi-mint was a a success! Even though I was a bit overzealous with the filling – a little leakage never hurt anyone . . . welll. . . besides my oven – this pie turned into quite the achieve-mint!

Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

The mint sprigs I grabbed from my garden, and the cherries are a summer Wisconsin staple. I decorated with a little powdered sugar once the pie was cooled! A loving state silhouette.

How did you do?

It’s perfect – and I’m not sharing!
