Achatz Handmade Pie Co.
Price range: US$1 - US$20
Description: Pie making may soon become a lost art but at Achatz Handmade Pie Co. We still do things the old fashioned way. Many of our recipes have been passed through generations, and we continue the tradition by sharing the same handmade techniques instilled in our childhood. Achatz pies are made with pure and natural ingredients; we never use chemicals, preservatives or hydrogenated oils. And most of our fruit, flour, sugar and dairy is purchased from local farms. These values result in a top quality product even grandma can be proud of. We started baking in 1993 from our Victorian home in Armada, Michigan. After moving our operation to a nearby ten-acre apple orchard, Achatz Handmade Pie Co. Was officially born. To this day we've maintained our high standards to produce a pie that we believe is simply the best. Our pies have been featured on "Food Network", the "Rachael Ray Show", "The Today Show" and "Good Morning America Weekend." We have also been featured in "Bon Appetit" magazine and "Food & Wine" magazine. Even though we have won numerous national and local awards, our pies are still down-to-earth, all natural and wholesome. We're keeping it real and we invite you to taste the difference. OUR HANDMADE PIES Our mission has always been to create the best pies money can buy. Our tender, flaky crust and real fruit fillings merge with as many locally-grown ingredients as available to create a pie that's fresh and natural. It's no wonder "Detroit News" food writer Kate Lawson has stated, "Achatz makes the best pies you'll ever eat." Achatz Handmade Pie Co. Cares about what we bring to your kitchen. We continue to stand up to the highest standards for quality, purity and goodness. Our cream pies are made from scratch using pure butter, pure vanilla and fresh local whole milk. We never use canned fruit and find every opportunity to use locally grown produce. And if you can't have sugar, we also have fruit juice sweetened pies available. We know extra care and extra effort make an extra delicious pie!

I sampled these pies when they first moved in. A couple years later I am pleased to say that they are as good as when they first opened. There is quite a selection and something for everyone craving sweets by the slice or selecting a pie for a special occasion. Do not hesitate to stop in for a great finish to a meal. These are good pies!

I don't dare say their pies are better than anyone else's in your family, like your Mother's, Grandmother's, or Aunt's, but I sure want to! Because it's my Grandmother's own apple pie that it takes me back to, in ways long forgotten till now. The apples are sliced thin, the pastry dough so delicate, and melt-in-your-mouth fresh. Oh yeah, I remember her apple pie now! In fact, all the pies we've tried, from fruit to cream pies, are unbelievable and very good. Pies are a bit pricier than most, but you won't be disappointed paying a few dollars more.
