TimeOut New York presents scrumptious options for those seeking the best pies for the holidays in New York City.
Thanksgiving is almost upon us, time for us all to remember what we are thankful for. If you live in the NYC area, this year it may feel a bit more difficult to feel particularly thankful as many of us are still dealing with the devastating effects of the recent hurricane and Nor’easter. It’s times like these when we have to remember be thankful for the little things, the seemingly minute delights in life that can put on a smile on the face of someone who desperately needs it. One of the greatest, most simple ways to cheer someone up is to bring them something sweet to eat. This list gives you insider knowledge on where to find the most delicious pies available for the holidays in the New York City area. This Thanksgiving, be the barer of good cheer and great desserts by bringing one these seasonal pastries to dinner, or drop a few off to those you know could you use a bit of culinary comfort. While all of these pies are sure to delight your taste buds, we recommend the Pumpkin Pie; a cornmeal crust lends a crunchy counterpoint to this pie’s creamy pumpkin filling, spiced with cinnamon, ginger and clove, nine-inch pie $28, available at One Girl Cookies, (68 Dean St between Boerum Pl and Smith St, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.)
