With the Thanksgiving holiday fast approaching, the general excitement around this holiday is beginning to give way: first to logistic concerns, then to concern in general, and finally to all-out panic. Well, here’s one thing you can cross off your list. Get ready for New York’s top five pies!
The Chocolate Babka Pie
Served up at Breads Bakery, this beauty is served in Nutella and chocolate chips, and laid into a pie shell. Even if you don’t know what a babka is, you’ll at least know that it’s delicious.
Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream Cake Pie
Definitely in the running for most syllables in a pie name, this piece of deliciousness incarnate can be found at Ample Hills Creamery. And don’t tell me ice cream cakes aren’t pie — after taking a bite, none of your guests will care.
Pumpkin Pie with Sugar Cone Crust
A traditional center with a new take on the crust. It’s unsurprising, perhaps, that this pie comes from none other than Morgenstern’s Ice Cream. While you’re with family, you can evoke memories of days long gone by, spent with them as a child. A pie that satisfies both the taste buds and the soul!
Bourbon Pecan Pie
With a deep sweetness in the filling and a crust with just a touch of vanilla, this pie from the Dominique Ansel Bakery is sure to satisfy. Even if you have particularly picky members of your household, rest assured that this will meet their high standards. Oh, and make sure to order by 11/25 to pick up on 11/27!
Why am I doing pumpkin pie twice? Well, because it’s in the top five, sure, but also because this type of pie has become a staple of Thanksgiving dinners everywhere. This particularly exquisite example of the standard comes from One Girl Cookies. Whatever else you get, make sure you have at least one of these on your dinner table.
As much fun as Thanksgiving can be (or not, I suppose — it really depends on how much you like/how well you tolerate your family), the time leading up to it always becomes incredibly stressful. So don’t worry about the pies — just tick one thing off your list, and bam! You have one less thing to stress about. And while you’re headed over, come on Seasreak! We know you’re exhausted, and we’ll pamper you all the way there and back, to give you a reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the holiday.
Sea you Soon!
