There are those who make their own pies and those who happily call in an order. If you’re in the latter camp, here’s your crib sheet for locally made holiday treats. Hurry up and order one (or several).
Humble Pie: Although owner Tamara Brink closed the Baker shop, she’s still in the pie business (and is actively hunting for a new retail location). For the holidays, she offers seven flavors, ranging from pumpkin spice to chocolate silk, for pick up or mail-order.
The Long I Pie Shop: Chances are you’ve seen Shauna Lott‘s Airstream-turned-mobile pie shop making its way around town. This Thanksgiving, she’s baking up five flavors, including sweet potato-ginger, spiced-apple cranberry, and pumpkin-chocolate. The bourbon-chocolate pecan and the salted honey–lavender can be made gluten-free. Place your order by November 17.
The Post Brewing Co. & Goodbird Kitchen: For the first time since the Lafayette restaurant opened, “Pie Guy” John Hinman‘s spectacular treats are available for preorder. Choose cherry (a recipe that has won many local contests), pumpkin, or pecan and arrange for pickup on Wednesday, November 26.
Project Angel Heart: Each year this beloved Denver nonprofit operates Pie in the Sky. Order a holiday pie ($25) and know that the money goes to providing five meals for those living with life-threatening diseases. Choose from apple, pumpkin, pecan, or cherry. (Place orders by November 20.)
Sugarmill: Pastry chef Noah French offers four pies this season: apple crumble, pecan, pumpkin, and the shop’s signature bourbon pecan chocolate-chip. Place orders before November 21.
Wednesday’s Pie: Frank Bonanno‘s pie shop (which doubles as a front for Green Russell) has seven pie options for the holidays, including mulled blueberry and maple-bourbon pumpkin. Thanksgiving orders must be placed by November 24.
