Achatz Handmade Pie Co.
Ranked #1 of 3 Dessert in Chesterfield
Price range: $1 - $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

If you don't bake your own, this is the place to get pie. They have a huge variety of whole pies and slices. You can order online and they frequently have e-mail specials. Try the Michigan Four Berry Pie. Actually have never been disappointed. Bon Appetite Magazine also recommended

We tried our first Achatz pie a couple of years ago, and won't buy our fruit or cream pies anywhere else. The double crust apple pie is my favorite, but you can't go wrong with the four-berry, peach or cherry. Their pies are made from scratch, and they use locally grown produce to make these awesome goodies. They are a little pricey, but you will forget about their price once you've had your first bite. Pick up one of these pies and take it to your next dinner party, picnic or get together. They have multiple stores in southeast Michigan, and you can find the locations on their website. As an of by the way - they ship pies, too!

This place is a little difficult to see. You can either get there from 26 mile or Gratiot. The best pies ever. It's family tradition at my moms house to get one every year for Christmas. Even birthdays we'll stop in and get one. Definitely a must go.
