Join the May Bakeable Challenge: Ohio Shaker Lemon Pie

We're taking a trip to the Midwest this month for this uniquely Ohio pie.

Our May Challenge

We’re taking a trip this May. It may be a journey for some, but many of you will call it home: the Midwest! This month’s challenge recipe comes from the heart of Ohio and is a Buckeye State favorite. This Ohio Shaker Lemon Pie is wonderfully tart and perfect for welcoming spring. Even better: It has a wonderfully crisp and golden crust since it’s baked in a cast-iron skillet.

How to Participate

  • Make a Shaker lemon pie: This is a recipe that may not get a lot of play outside of Ohio, but it’s so tasty that we think it should be enjoyed coast to coast.
  • Try our #Makeable challenge: We know you don’t always have time to tackle a pie from scratch—especially on a busy weeknight. The good news is that our easy #Makeable challenge is perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth without much fuss. This May, we encourage you to try these top-rated Scotcheroos. They’re a Midwest fave!
  • Enter our sweepstakes: Share photos of this month’s bakes with us and you could win nifty gear for your kitchen. Here’s a hint: These prizes will help you create next month’s challenge!
  • Share photos: You can also share pics on the Bakeable Facebook group or on Instagram (use #bakeable). We’d love to see what you’re baking!
  • Ask questions: If you need help or a few baking tips, talk with our Taste of Home baking pros or others taking the challenge. They’re ready to answer all your questions in our Facebook group.
