Mom's Rhubarb Pie

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

I have been making oil crust pastry lately because it is so much faster. As I was making the crust, today, I realized that I didn't have enough all-purpose flour, so I added self-rising flour. I was wondering if this was a mistake, but it actually helped make the crust flaky and tender. We are going on vacation tomorrow, so I did not take any time to garnish the pie. It does taste just like my mother made it!

Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

I used rhubarb from the back yard. It is a bit late in the season for rhubarb, but I was able to find some young pieces to use. All the rain we have been having has helped!

How did you do?

Pleasantly satisfied.
