Pies to order - Phoenix, Tempe area
Can I get some good recommendations for a place to order a pumpkin and apple pie for Thanksgiving. I work in the Biltmore area and live in So Tempe so I need some place close by. Thanks!
Karsh's Bakery at the NE corner of 7th Street and Missouri has great pies. I'm not a pumpkin fan, so I don't know about theirs, but their other stuff is top notch.
Other ideas include:
AJ's -- valleywide
Le Grande Orange -- 40th Street and Campbell
I have had great luck ordering holiday pies from Wildflower -- there is usually an apple, a pumpkin, and a nut pie to choose from and they are all impressive. There's two locations in south Tempe.
Thanks for the idea for Karsh's since it's right down the street and I was going to get my rolls there. I've never noticed pies on previous trips. (I, too, dislike pumpkin so I can't bring myself to make one). I called LGO but their's are $24 ea. which is hard to justify with a currently out-of-work spouse.
Happy Thanksgiving to you too!
If you do go to Karsh's pick up a few rugalach too, wow, they are delish!!
I figured LGO would be a fortune. I remembered a friend said she had a slice there a few days ago and called her for her opinion. She said she didn't care for it. It was too light and mousse-y (is that a word). So, no loss for $24.
You guys are making me hungry with all this pie talk! I've seen a place called Pie in the Sky up in North Scottsdale on TV before and their pies looked to die for. But haven't had the chance to try them. I think a trip to Karsh's might be in order, I'm craving pie now!
