The Mill’s Whole Wheat Hand Pie
By Anna Faller | June 10, 2023
Opened in April in Glen Arbor, The Mill café and bakery is a one-stop shop for all things nostalgia, from the charm of its past as a local grain mill to their wildly-popular Whole Wheat Hand Pies. An elegant take on the classic pasty, each pie is baked in a hot-water crust—that’s what creates that buttery crumble—and is packed with locally-sourced ingredients. This month, the PB&J gets an adult upgrade in a pie filled with apple- and almond-butters, Sweet Teague apples, and rich brown sugar. (Be sure to stay tuned to their menu, as a galette-style handheld with asparagus is already in the works for summer!) Savor one inside the café—ask for it warmed and thank us later—or take your goodies on the road. Get your hands on one ($7) at The Mill in Glen Arbor (5440 W. Harbor Hwy). Order online at themillglenarbor.com, or find them on social media @themillglenarbor.
