Paper bag pie

I realized that I mentioned The Elegant Farmer a couple of weeks ago but never posted the pictures to taunt you guys with! Abi had mentioned this place as having the best apple pie in America to me last year and since then it has been on my mental bucket list of places I want to visit before I leave Milwaukee. The Elegant Farmer is a farm and grocer in East Troy, WI. The store is actually in a renovated old barn.

The pies are sold right in the greasy paper bags
and come in full or personal size.

From what I understand, the paper bag helps to steams the pie while it is cooking. I bought a little personal-sized peach apple pie. And it was good good. The top crust is really crisp and sugar and you almost have to crack it like an egg. Then you just have to scoop the rest out of the paper bag.

If you are ever in East Troy, WI (as we all are at some point in our lives, right?) then I definitely recommend stopping by here for a bite to eat!


  1. I have never been there...but the pie looks amazing!! I am hungry now:)

  2. I had pie in a bag when I lived in Chicago. It is a beautiful thing.
