10 Places to Order Thanksgiving Pies
Got guests coming and not enough time to do it all? Let these tantalizing bakeries handle your dessert course.
Pastry chef/owner Sol Schott maintains a busy wholesale business (you can hoover his pies by the slice at Rare Bird Coffee Roasters, William Jeffrey’s Tavern, Westover Market and other local eateries), but he is accepting a limited number of direct orders (about 100 pies per day) in the lead-up to Thanksgiving. The hitch: You’ll need to stop by his Columbia Pike shop in person between 3-9 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, to place your order. Expect variations on the classics (all priced at $32) such as apple with caramelized sugar (“which happens to be vegan,” he says); sweet potato; pumpkin with candied ginger; or chocolate-pecan, which is made with maple syrup in lieu of corn syrup for a flavor profile that’s not too sweet. //2803 Columbia Pike, Arlington
