The 5 best apple pies in Bergen County

Honestly, what's better than apple pie?

Honestly, what’s better than apple pie?

October is many things: Halloween, official kick off to sweater weather, and pumpkin spice lattes. But, more than all of that, it’s also apple pie month. There’s nothing better than spelling those apples, sugar and cinnamon baking in the oven. Well, actually there is: eating it.

If you’re not the best baker or simply don’t have the time, there are still plenty of ways to get your apple pie fix this fall. Just check out one of these hot spots in Bergen County where they’re serving up a mean piece of apple pie.

1. Mr. Tod’s Pie Factory in Englewood

Mr. Tod’s specializes in pies and other baked goods made from scratch using all-natural ingredients. It was even featured in the New York Times, on The Today Show, ABCCNBC and more.  Mr. Tod was also the first entrepreneur on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank. While he has sweet potato, pumpkin, and chocolate pecan, his apple crumb pie is da bomb. It’s so good you could eat the crumb part as its own dessert.

2. Cupcakes by Carousel in Ridgewood

Oprah says that their new Memphis Drizzle Cake is “stupid good,” so you know their classic apple pie has to be just as delish. Their apples are cooked to perfection and the seasoning is just right and their apple crumb pie is baked using delicious cinnamon apples in a flaky homemade cookie pie crust all topped with streusel crumbs. It is also available in cherry, blueberry and sugar free. But, who would want that?

3. Abma’s Farm in Wyckoff

This adorable farm is a one stop shop for all your produce needs. Stop to grab your groceries and pick up one of their delicious seasonal apple pies. They also have hayrides and a petting zoo to keep your kids busy where you can buy pellets and feed the pigs, sheep, goats, and more.

4. The Barn in Closter

Happy Birthday Jimmy!

They don’t have just one apple pie here, but three. Taste their apple, apple caramel walnut and apple crumb to decide which one you like best. Your best bet? Take home all of them.

5. Balthazar Bakery in Englewood

Celebrity chef Keith McNally’s Balthazar in Soho might be the mecca when it comes to baked goods but the actual bakery is located in New Jersey. The smells alone will entice you, but once inside you’ll have a hard time choosing which pastry to choose. Their caramel apple pie is a solid choice and is just as beautiful as it tastes.
