What’s your favorite part about Thanksgiving? If you’re like us, you might’ve thought of one word: pie. If you’re ready to drop your diet like it’s hot this Thanksgiving, we’re certain you’ll love these local bakeries!
Lovingly nicknamed “The Sugar Fairy,” this Houston favorite operated by phenomenal pastry chef Rebecca Masson recently re-opened, and we are here for their assortment of colorful treats! They even offer curbside pickup. Show some support for local business by ordering from their online menu or calling.
If you see long lines on West Crosstimbers, it’s probably for the pie at Flying Saucer Pie Company, one of the longest-standing family-owned bakeries in Houston. Their selection of fruit, cream, and seasonal pies, along with dreamy creamy cheesecakes, is pretty unparalleled. You could try a new pie every Thanksgiving for a good long while! It’s also hard not to smile at their marketing… Flying saucers… Pies… Order your desserts early this year if possible!
This bakery is a family-owned business with more than 45 years of experience in crafting some of the yummiest pies in Houston. Made the old-fashioned way with no preservatives, the pies here are divine, and customers have a multitude of options to choose from. Plus, House of Pies has four convenient locations, making it easy to grab a pie no matter where you are in Houston.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t include Three Brothers Bakery in this list. Their three fabulous locations offer cupcakes, pies, cakes, cookies, and other desserts to lift your spirits and make your holidays a little bit brighter. They’re pretty famous, too: they’ve been featured on the Food Network, Good Housekeeping, and CountryLiving, just to name a few of the brands you might recognize. We’ve personally got our eyes on the Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie, but if you’re feeling extra adventurous, the Pumpecapple Piecake might be up your alley. It includes three layers of cake with pie inside, cream cheese icing, and a tasty caramel drizzle with pecans. Yum!
Drooling yet? Us too. Since Houstonians are purchasing their Thanksgiving groceries and supplies early this year, why not grab an extra pie to enjoy now? After all, you deserve something sweet.
