Michaleen from Portage, WI

Michaleen 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?

It's perfect — and I'm not sharing!

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

EnlightenMint!

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.
