Something Special from Wisconsin. The state fruit is the cranberry, and of course, Wisconsin is the dairy state. The ingredients in this seasonal pie bake up into a wonderful treat for Thanksgiving. Our family first had this pie at the Elegant Farmer in East Troy Wisconsin. It took us quite a few attempts to recreate it. I think this is pretty close. You can make your own crust, or use a prepared one. Timing based on using prepared crust.
This is my Mom's recipe. She made hundreds of dozens of these over the years for church suppers and family reunions. They were always requested and frequently mailed to relatives who would not make it home for Thanksgiving. They aren't easy to make. But they do make an impression.
She had shared the recipe with my aunts, but I never made them. The "Church Basement Society Ladies" honored her by making them for a reception for our family when she passed away.
My mother made a Swiss Steak that everyone raved about. I adapted it with chicken.
To make it a little more heart healthy, I substitute low fat plain yogurt for sour cream.
The house smells good for hours.
My daughter brought me a London Fog Tea Latte from Starbucks. I really liked it and wanted a caffeine free alternative. I used Sweet Amore from Teavana. It contains an herbal blend of Rooibos, apple, pear, almond, apple and cinnamon). It is the alternate we use in the evening to my Latte Miel in the morning.
