Pumpkin Pie - Toronto

Hi,
Any recommendations on where to get the best pumpkin pie? We have tried a couple of people in the North End of SLM and used to order from Dufflet's but would love to try something new.

Or if anyone can recommend a frozen pie crust! That would work too.

Thanks.

    There is a shortage of fresh pumpkins this year, so there may be few pies from scratch at the bakeries. Most will use canned pumpkin, and the best QPR is Costco, fresh baked 12 inches @$6.

      Hi,
      The one that comes closest to home-made that I've had comes from The Apple Factory. It's worth the drive to Hwy. 7 and Mississauga Road in Brampton. Don't bother with grocery store pies. They also have the best fresh green beens I've found anywhere.

        Thanks for the suggestions. Ruby Eats pastry chef has made pumpkin pie filling. I am hoping i might luck out and still get a jar and find a frozen pastry crust or that the good folks at sweet bliss call me back as they apparently have been using real pumpkin. I had no idea about the pumpkin shortage.

        Years ago I had an amazing pumpkin cheesecake w brandy from Pusateri's - not sure whether it was made in store or even whether it is still available - definitely recommend it if you don't mind the richness.
