From now until 2021 ends, it’s prime time for pies.
Holiday gatherings are the perfect excuse to serve a variety of seasonal favorites, from custardy pumpkin and rich pecan pies, to densely sweet chocolate and pleasantly tart lemon baked treats.
Here’s a list of some of our favorite pies to enjoy from Thanksgiving until the new year, and some of the better places around the state to get them.
Some are bakeries, and others are restaurants. If you want to find a good selection of house-made pie, for example, you generally won’t go wrong in a barbecue restaurant.
If a restaurant only advertises slices, chances good are that, with advance notice, it will sell a whole pie to take home or to a party.
We’ve presented our favorite pie places by flavor—but most of the places listed below also make some of the other pies on the list. So don’t feel constrained. Pick up several to dish out to guests.
