My favorite thing about Thanksgiving besides spending time with family is dessert. Yes I love the turkey too, but let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a fresh baked apple pie? I have never met a dessert I didn’t like and a great slice of pie and ice cream is probably one of my all time favorites. As you plan out your Thanksgiving day meal here is a list of local bakeries that are now taking orders for Thanksgiving day pies.
Make sure you get your orders in early! While a few are first come first serve many of these places require orders to be in by next week. In addition to pies, several of the local businesses below offer fresh baked breads, rolls, tarts, pastries and other delicious confections to help round out your feast.
If you need some great locally roasted coffee to serve your guest along with dessert I recommend picking up a bag of coffee beans from 4th Dimension Coffee at Cocoa Cinnamon in Durham or Black & White Coffee Roasters in Wake Forest. Both of these roasters offer excellent fresh roasted coffees that will go perfect with a slice of pie or make for the perfect party host gift.
