HOLLENBECKS CIDER MILL
Have you even experienced pumpkin pie if you haven't tried Hollenbeck's signature pumpkin pie? Seriously. We assure you, it's like nothing you've ever had before. That being said, if you'd like one of these masterpieces to grace your table, be sure to place your order by November 19th, and while you're there, you might as well order some of their delicious dinner rolls.
According to the oxford dictionary, mincemeat is a mixture of currants, raisins, sugar, apples, candied citrus peel, and spices, typically baked in a pie. Popular during medieval England, this customary Christmas pie is coming back into fashion, and Poole's Drive-In might be one of the few places where you can experience this historical delicacy. If you want to impress your guest with this uniquely delicious pie, place your order by November 17th!
THE GLEN HAVEN
Apple pie like grandma used to make? Yes, please! For three decades, The Glen Haven has been filling bellies with their signature dutch apple pie. Give grandma the night off, and order your pie from The Glen Haven by November 18th for your holiday table! Sprinkled with sugar and spice and everything nice, we promise it won't disappoint.
The best thing about pie? There is a flavor for everyone. For you non-traditionalists out there, think outside the crust and order a peanut butter pie from Frosted Bakery. Creamy peanut butter, decadent chocolate ganache, whipped peanut butter mouse, and fresh whipped cream, all layered in a gram cracker crust, smothered in chocolate and peanut butter drizzle, takes Thanksgiving pie to a whole new level. If you have a passion for peanut butter, be sure to place your order by November 19th.
When it comes to pies, are there any as beloved as the classic cherry pie? A quick google search reveals over a dozen songs written about the timeless culinary classic. From doo-wop to 80's hair bands, they are all in love with cherry pie. If cherry has stolen your holiday heart, be sure to place your order with Trinity Valley by November 18th, where all the pies are baked with love.
ANDERSON'S FARM MARKET
Is the thought of Thanksgiving with the family got you feeling a little nutty? Embrace it! Make a statement with a gorgeous pecan pie from Anderson's Farm Market. The delightful sticky, crunchy delicacy will quickly silence the argument of whether it's pronounced pe-CAN or puh-KAHN and fill the room with contented mmms and ahhs instead. While this pecan pie can't promise world peace, I can promise you to need to order it by November 16th if you want to give it a try.
