Achatz Pies Voted #1 in America

There's been so much buzz about these Achatz pies that we had to drive up Gratiot Avenue to check out the source. Said like "jackets" but without the J, they've been on Rachel Ray's, the Food Network and Good Morning America. Started by Wendy Achatz and family up in Armada, they have expanded to five other northern metro Detroit stores with another one opening soon in Beverly Hills. We purchased our pies still warm from the oven! The four berry is outstanding. Then we had to eat the rhubarb and then the dutch apple. We also went home with a quiche, homemade jam and a loaf of sourdough bread. Now we have to go back to try the lemon meringue, the French silk, the raspberry cream, the banana split pie.....oh my!


  1. I just have to tell you that I love your blog. As lifelong lover of all things Michigan, how could I not?

    And, I am glad to know:
    1) the correct pronunciation of Achatz, and
    2) that they're actually opening a store in Beverly Hills (I live very close!).

    Your blog is a treasure trove.

    :) Jane
