Let’s face it: Thanksgiving dinner without a pie or two is really just a big dry chicken. Don’t do that to yourself. Don’t do it to your family. Luckily, you don’t have to be a Great British Baking Show hopeful in order to wow your family. Here are some great pies made right here in Sonoma that will give you something to be thankful for.
Mom’s Apple Pie, Sebastopol
When we talk about farm-to-table dining in Sonoma County, we mean that literally! Mom’s Apple Pie bakes with the apples directly from their backyard orchard. They say there’s no secret ingredient to the amazing pie, just the pure freshness of locally-sourced ingredients.
Petaluma Pie Company, Petaluma
Located in the heart of downtown, Petaluma Pie Company is a local favorite. They offer a variety of flavors from sweet– like Pear Ginger Cardamom– to savory—like Curried Cauliflower and Chickpea so you can have pie for any meal.
Noble Folk Ice Cream & Pie Bar, Healdsburg
Noble Folk offers seasonal flavors from locally sourced ingredients as well as amazing homemade ice cream. With unique pie flavors like Strawberry Blueberry Ginger and even vegan ice cream options, it’s a match made in heaven.
College Confectionista, Healdsburg
Anamaria the magic hand behind College Confectionista, brings you bold flavor and some of the best cheesecakes around. We know, this is a pie article, but we wanted to make you you have options! Her Thanksgiving menu includes a pumpkin spice cheesecake poured over a graham cracker crust and a Mexican hot chocolate cheesecake drizzle with dulce de leche.
You can always run into Safeway and grab something out of their industrial oven, but just remember that dessert is the punctuation mark at the end of your Thanksgiving feast. It can either trail off into nothing… Or it can leave people stuffed and happy!
