Alaina from Milwaukee, WI

Alaina participated in 2018 Week 5: Pies, and attempted the American Pie Challenge. Let's see how they did!

How do you rate your baking performance?

Absolutely lovely.

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

Queen Cherry Pie

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

Homemade crust is something a lot of people avoid. I am so proud of my pie crust. Turned out flaky, light and buttery. Homemade is always best.

Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

I read up on the history of pies (I am a history buff) and credit goes to the English for giving Queen Elizabeth the 1st the very first cherry pie. So I of course had to make one and I used Door County cherries in my filling . . . because we're in WI; where else has better cherries?
