Rhubarb Apple Pie Baked in a Paper Bag®

This pie arrives with a charming, rustic cracked crust.

The Elegant Farmer ships its award-winning Apple Pie Baked in a Paper Bag® nationwide on Goldbelly! Normally, this would be where we would tell you how magnificent this apple pie is. How it is stuffed with mounds and mounds of perfectly steamed, incredibly juicy Ida Red apples and farm-fresh rhubarb, the crust positively bulges. How, being baked in a paper bag makes the top crust uniquely crunchy while keeping the traditional bottom crust amazingly light and flakey, a hallmark of the best old-fashioned pies. How the delicate, sugar cookie-like crust and hearty sweet-tart apples combine to make for simply the best pie ever. But don’t trust us. Trust three generations of fans. They have all acclaimed the Elegant Farmer’s Apple Pie Baked in a Paper Bag® the “best apple pie in America.” And we couldn’t agree more.

The Elegant Farmer bakes what many, including the Wall Street Journal, Food Network, and Gourmet have called the “best apple pie in America.” Established in 1946 as a small, family-run Wisconsin dairy farm by brothers Dave and Elmer Scheel, The Elegant Farmer is now renowned for its charm and comfort foods, most notably their legendary apple pie baked in a paper bag. It’s a mouthwatering pie bulging with juicy, sweet-tart apples with a light and flaky bottom crust and a charmingly rustic crunchy cracked top crust. More than 250,000 of the Wisconsin bakery’s brown bag apple pies are baked each year!

"I got the World Famous Apple Pie in a Brown Bag for my family’s Thanksgiving. Delicious 😋! The apples were perfectly sweet/tart, and abounding! The crust was excellent, the topping was crusty & perfectly seasoned! I thawed in in the refrigerator for a day, so it heated beautifully!"

I liked everything about the brown bag apple pie. The apples were tender and crust was especially delicious. It seemed to caramelize in spots. It was delivered on time and in perfect condition. We all loved it.

It was as if my grandmother made it, which is the highest praise I could give something. Their pie was delicious in every way, and was definitely the highlight of our Thanksgiving meal, which also happened to be my fathers 91st birthday! It was heaven warm with ice-cream, and the next day I had a piece chilled with whip cream... both were heaven.

We got the apple pie baked in a bag from The Elegant Farmer. Hands down the best apple pie (and probably the best pie period) that we ever ate.
Barbara W. - Jackson, NJ
The apple and apple caramel pies are incredible - the best I have ever had. Not only is the fruit of high quality and perfectly baked, the crust is amazingly delicious. Even though my wife is not a pie fan, she truly loved the crust and would probably have eaten all of it. It is flaky, caramelized, and addictive.
