At our traditional Thanksgiving meal, the turkey may take center stage, but once we clear away the dinner plates and make room for dessert, the “oohs” & “ahhs” are all about the pies. Whether you decide to bake your own or farm dessert out to a willing guest, there’s sure to be more than one flavor of pie in the dessert line up. If you’ve made the entire meal but want a little relief from the oven, order your pies from a local artisan baker and continue that special meal all the way to the last slice. These are a few of our Boston-area favorites.
