Thanksgiving's Coming - Who makes excellent Pecan Pies?

One of the better ones I have had recently was made by Southern Oven Foods - which has limited distribution. Any favorites would be appreciated.

  1. You could check to see if Bakesale Betty's in Oakland is planning on doing Pecan Pie around Thanksgiving. I've tried a number of their pies, and they're all great (including the pumpkin, which I had the other day).

    1. I had one really great pecan pie from Art Davis, the potato and egg seller, at the Berkeley Farmer's Market. It had been browned sufficiently to caramelize the bottom crust. A second pie wasn't as good, but it was frozen and defrosted 2-3 times before we actually got around to eating it.
