Pumpkin Pie

Royale Nov 15, 2007 06:23 AM

So it's that time of year again and I found out that none of the usual bakers in the family will be making a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving dinner. This has been one of my favorite parts of this season since I was a child, and Thanksgiving won't be the same without it. What stores or bakeries around here sell a better than average classic whole pumpkin pie that I can pick up?

    Probably too late but the Iron Works BBQ restaurant downtown (100 Red River) has delicious homemade pumpkin pie that the ladies/owners make themselves. One year I offered to purchase an entire pie because it was just that good. I'll probably go there on Crazy Friday (11-23-07) just because I'm now salivating thinking about it.

      Not to corrupt your thread, but what I'd like to find is a big, fluffy pumpkin cheesecake with a sour cream frosting and a gingersnap crust....

        lol--Costco has that too. I haven't tried it though, so I can't vouch. Sounds yummy!

          Yep, Costso has a delish pumpkin cheesecake. I can't say it has a gingersnap crust (it's been a year or two since I had it) but it is very good, as is their pumpkin pie, which they were sampling last weekend. I'm sure they'll do so again this weekend.

            Costco makes their pumpkin pies at each store location. I try waiting to the last minute to buy mine. Pecan pie is pretty good as well.

                Truly, the Costco pumpkin pie is the best store-bought pie I've ever tasted. It's huge, delicious and cheap.

                Pumpkin pie is very easy to make, though...the crust is the hardest part.

                I've ordered one from Royer's this year based on word of mouth.
