Hollenbeck's Cider Mill, 1265 NY-392, Cortland NY; Website.
You can't go wrong with the humble apple pie, but one crucial question can cause disputes among loved ones. Crust or crumb topping? Put away the boxing gloves because Hollenbeck's Cider Mill is featuring their popular Appley-Ever After Pie this week. A classic apple pie with both crust and crumb topping.
Anderson's Farm Market, 5887 NY-281, Homer NY; Website.
A simple Blueberry Pie from Anderson's Farm Market is the perfect dessert to share with company (or not). Not only can you satisfy your sweet tooth, but blueberries are one of the healthiest fruits on the market, so dig in.
CHICKEN BACON RANCH PIZZA
BRIX Pubaria, 60 Main Street, Cortland NY; Website.
Pizza is everyone's favorite quick meal, but BRIX Pubaria takes it to a whole new level with their Chicken Bacon & Ranch pie. It's topped with grilled chicken, bacon and a drizzle of their homemade ranch dressing. Enjoy it by the slice, or the pie - we don't judge.
Hairy Tony's, 102 Main Street, Cortland NY; Website.
If you're the savory type, a Shepard's Pie at Hairy Tony's is acceptable on this day too. The traditional pub menu item is made with rich beef and vegetable stew cooked for hours with Guinness beer, crusted with cheddar mashed potatoes.
CHICKEN POT PIE

Sometimes we're all in dire need of comfort food. Hop over to The Community Restaurant for their classic take on the Chicken Pot Pie. Mixed vegetables and chicken in a rich homemade gravy sauce topped with a flaky pie crust. Yum.
