I have 2 ...   ELEGANT FARMER APPLE PIE ....  OMG,  better than home made!  It's made in a brown paper bag in Wisconsin.  The crust and filling are beyond delicious....  buttery with cinnamon and beautiful big apples.  You heat it in the oven and the smell drifts through the entire house.  If you ever have the chance to try an ELEGANT FARMER apple pie,  please don't pass up the opportunity.  You can definitly tell that this pie was not massed produced and has none of those awful chemicals that so many desserts now have.    

 

On the coffee cake side....  we can get Grandma's of New England at one of our local supermarkets and I like their cinnamon walnut.  I must say however, that the last one that I bought had less of the cinnamon ribbon inside of the cake than it used to have, which was disappointing.  But it was still delicious.

Costco's white sheet cake.  I generally do not like store bought cakes, but OMG that is my weakness. The only problem is that it is MASSIVE, so I can only buy it when I have tons of people over.

We went to Costco right before Christmas and I asked a neighbor if she wanted anything - she asked us to pick her up a tiramisu.  I had never seen it there before.  Holy cannoli - it looked amazing!  I wish I got one for us too.

Years ago, I was visiting a friend in Wisconsin and we went to the Elegant Farmer and bought a few items, one being the apple pie.  You are absolutely right about it.  Best apple pie ever.

easy; ice cream!  All our local bakeries closed and our local supermarkets do not compare.  I don't live near a large enough city to get real bakery goods. Some of the frozen pies mentioned are okay but I prefer homemade.  For store bought cookies my favorite is Tates Coconut Crisp Cookies  A little pricey but so good!

I seriously try to avoid the desserts/sweets sections of my grocery store. I do buy a Pepperidge Farm coconut layer cake 1-2x a year when they are priced 2 for $4. I am more tempted by the chocolate or peanut butter no bake cookies.
