Pumpkin Pie

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?

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

    1. Costco...really large delicious pies for about $6

      1. don't laugh...I second the Costco nomination. Their pumpkin pie is delicious!

          No laughing here! Thanks for the recommendation.

            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.

        2. love royers but costco is pretty good too. i hear tootie pie is outstanding

            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.

          2. 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.
