  1. I've only tried the une at urth and it was to die for! I highly reccomend it.

    1. I have not tried Josie, but the Urth version is fantastic and is actually where I ordered my own Thanksgiving pie. Some places the filling is good but not the crust, or vice versa. With Urth, everything is great. Whole pie goes for $40, which is an absolute splurge but ... it's Thanksgiving.

      1. Jonna's pecan pumpkin pie is a masterpiece. She has won awards for her pastry skills for many a good reason, so Josie definitely! A good list of a few TG ideas here

        1. Main differences: Urth Cafe's pumpkin pie is huge and has a non-traditional graham cracker crust. Josie's pumpkin pie is standard size and has a traditional pie crust. I think their prices are very similar (approx. $30), so you get a lot more pie for your money at Urth. Both pies are tasty, but I prefer Josie's version for the traditional crust. It's one of the best pie crusts I've had anywhere. Too bad it serves only 6-8 people max.
