Apple Pie Baked in a Brown Paper Bag

Apple Pie baked in a Brown Paper Bag. Yes it sounds strange but it is the best Apple Pie I have ever had in my whole life. If you ever have the chance to make it to Elegant Farmer in Mukwonago Wisconsin I highly recommend you do. It’s not too far from Lake Geneva WI or Milwaukee and its definitely worth the trip. This pie brings back great memories for me. I was first introduced to this pie when I was a camp counselor in a nearby town. We had a day off and one of my fellow counselors was raving about this pie so we took a trip. Let me say that coming from a metropolitan area I was amazed and in love at first site. It’s very rustic and inviting and the smell of fresh baked pies hits you right as you walk in. They have a lot more than just pies, they have cheese, ham, fresh fruit, amazing berry apple cider, and a tons of other baked goods. I won’t go on about those just check out their website. Once I made it past all of the other items they offer in the store I was faced with a fantastic display of baked goods and many bakers racks of pies. We chose to go with the classic apple pie, a 9 inch pie for 3 people. We drove back to camp for what seemed like hours with the fresh baked pie in the back seat the smell of sweet buttery goodness calling our name. We were able to make it up the lodge before we dug into the pie. 3 forks and 20 minutes later the pie was gone. After that I was hooked, I brought one home to my family the next time I went home. In hindsight that was a bad idea because every time I came home I had to pick up at least 3 pies then,1 fresh and 2 frozen. Because they too had become hooked. When P and I were dating I told him about this pie and when we went to go see my sister who by then was a counselor herself we got a pie. And he too was astounded by how good this pie was. We then brought it for Thanksgiving to his family and they really liked the pie as well. So because I have introduced to many people already, I thought why not introduce it the masses via my blog. So this love affair with the Best Apple Pie began over 10 years ago and will continue for a long time to come.

One of my favorite parts of this pie is removing the bag from the pie. As you slowly pull of pieces of the bag some of the fantastic buttery crust will come off and you can peel it off of the bag and snack on it so no one knows you already had a taste when you bring out the pie. And Finally a picture of a slice of pie. Bet you wish you had a piece right now!

Update - I have had a lot of people asking for a recipe for this and trust me I wish I had one. I did find this
and in the comments people have suggestions but I don't think that Elegant Farmer will ever give up the recipe.
