One of America’s Best Apple Pies Is About An Hour From Rockford
Thanksgiving dinner is all about traditional foods, turkey, mashed potatoes, rolls, etc.
The dessert usually consists of pumpkin pie. In my house, we do pumpkin pie and apple pie.
In 2020, I may have to try Gourmet Apple Pie Baked in a Paper Bag. You read that right, that's the name.
A gourmet apple pie served in a paper bag. While you might be taken aback by the whole idea, The Elegant Farmer is changing the way we eat apple pie.
Their pie is so good, The Daily Meal called it one of America's Best Apple Pies recently.
The hot-spot is most known for its award-winning Gourmet Apple Pie Baked in a Paper Bag. It is, as the name implies, baked in a paper bag, a technique that creates a crunchy top and light crust.
If you're like me and thought, "I need this at Thanksgiving this year." you better hurry and order now. The Elegant Farmer is sold out of the apple, raspberry apple, and rhubarb apple pies baked in a paper bag. Only their caramel apple pie baked in a paper bag remains available for order.
The Elegant Farmer, open every day from 9 a.m. to 6 pm., is located at 1545 Main Street in Mukwonago, Wisconsin, about one hour and 15 minutes from Rockford.
