If you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner at home this year (or spending it at someone else’s), consider saving yourself the trouble of crimping dough or pre-baking pastry shells. That’s because NYC is absolutely glutted with spots serving incredibly innovative, artisanal pies, including Bien Cuit, Butter & Scotch, Momofuku Milk Bar and more. So if you really want to make an impression this holiday, go ahead and place your order now, for apple-lined, pumpkin-filled and pecan-topped treats!
Even though this adored Boerum Hill bakery just came out with a cookbook, no one will fault you if you just go straight to the source, rather than attempting to execute their Cocoa Nib Pecan or Pumpkin Caramel Pies yourself. Bien Cuit will actually be open from 7am-noon on Thanksgiving Day, but pre-orders for each $35 pie are highly suggested — so place a call by 11/23 latest, for a last minute pickup!
These boozy bakers are fond of spiking their treats with a liberal dose of booze; such as the best-selling Bourbon Ginger Pecan Pie, rich with local maple syrup and the finest top-shelf whiskey. Although teetotalers might appreciate other, more abstemious options, such as Caramel Apple, Pumpkin Spice or sticky S’mores Pie, filled with milk chocolate ganache and toasted marshmallow fluff. So don’t worry because there’s something for everyone at this Crown Heights shop, which got its start at Smorgasburg and took off in a big way!Read More
The adjacent bakery to this snug, husband and wife-owned Lower East Side eatery is offering a trio of totally classic Thanksgiving pies for pick up — choose between Organic Apple Crumb, Maple Bourbon Pecan or silky Pumpkin Butterscotch, with a custard-like filling speckled with toasty autumn spices — or save yourself the trouble, and simply go for all three!Read More
Even if you’re not the only guest assigned to dessert, we can pretty much guarantee you’d be the only one toting Crack Pie. Stand out from the standard apple, pumpkin or pecan crowd by ordering one of these undeniably addictive desserts from Momofuku Milk Bar; a cross between a gooey butter cake and chess pie, poured into a toasted oat crust.Read More
Now that there’s a branch of this eminently craveable fried chicken and pie palace in Manhattan, we expect even more of their desserts will be making an appearance on holiday tables, all throughout NYC. Choose from Banana Cream, Apple, Bourbon Pecan, Sweet Potato, Candy Bar, and Pear-Sour Cherry Pies, along with a tasty Coconut Macaroon option, for the inevitable gluten-free diner in your family.Read More
Needless to say, pie is the name of the game at this adorable, Hell’s Kitchen shop. So it only stands to reason that their Thanksgiving menu is especially extensive — place your orders for Sour Cream Apple Walnut, Southern Pecan, Three Berry, Sweet Potato, Cranberry Crumb or Mississippi Mud Pie by November 16th, for pickup before noon on Thanksgiving.Read More
While this Chelsea BBQ joint is best known for succulent smoked meats and southern style sides, Hill Country boasts an even more impressive selection of pies than your average bakery — think Dark Chocolate Pecan, Double Cherry, Lemon Chess, Whiskey Buttermilk and a whole lot more. You can even order an array of single serving pie cups, creating a serious smorgasbord of Thanksgiving desserts for guests to choose from!Read More
Brooklyn’s most infamous husband-and-wife baking team just shockingly announced they’ll be shuttering their shop, effective Christmas Eve. Which means you have just one holiday left, to get a taste of their utterly indulgent and unique creations, such as a Honey Whiskey Pecan Pie, Bourbon Caramel Apple Pie, or Chocolate Cream Pie, ladled with dreamy mascarpone chantilly. It would be even more tragic to miss the opportunity for one last sweet bite!
