Sarah from Wisconsin

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

How do you rate your baking performance?

It's not pretty, but it’s edible.

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

King's Arms Norfolk Pottage Pye - I was recreating a dish from a restaurant in Colonial Williamsburg.

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

My hand raised pie with liquid filling (not a blob of traditional icky sausage, which I was not a-gonna put in there) didn't hold up. Or maybe it was poorly made hot water crust (my first time, so didn't know what I was doin'). The baked pie looked like Manisha's crème caramel from the show's technical challenge last week. FLATSO! Good thing I made a back-up in a tin.

Describe how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.

My first teeny garden potatoes of the year! They were the perfect size for my miniature pie. I'm still making everything mini this year.
