  1. Believe it or not, our local Vons today in Ventura had a square pie with a caramel/nut top that looked pretty interesting. Maybe they have them as far south as LA.

    1. believe it or not, Costco has a fabulous apple crumb pie... lots of streusel and lots of apples...

      1. Susina Bakery has an apple tart w/ vanilla hazelnut crumble that comes in various sizes. it's listed with the Thanksgiving menu.

          Susie Cakes has a delicious apple pie with crumb topping (lots of cinnamon).

        2. I saw that Sam's Club had a caramel/apple/nut holiday pie for $9.87 in the Santa Clarita location. I'm not sure how good it would be nut it did look unusual.

          1. It has been a while but I recall getting some really good pies at The Filling Station out in the old town section of Orange. Pumpkin was very good as was the caramel apple pie. It is what you asked for plus it is large, deep dish and has very special crust. When on the table this pie might take away from the bird. For Thurs? I doubt it but maybe if you call ASAP and beg.... Otherwise, now you know where to go next time,

                Please report back. I searched for some older post and could not find any with photos. I recall Professor Salt once had a great photo of the punpkin pie and it really showed how special the crust is.-- like a thick sugar cookie.
