What’s a Thanksgiving spread without a delicious pie to round out the meal? From classic pumpkin to the questionably named “crack,” we present our favorite pies in NYC. Satisfy your Turkey Day sweet tooth with one of the specialty pastries below.
Heritage Brown Sugar Pumpkin Pie
Yura’s on Madison
1292 Madison Avenue, near 92nd Street
Yura’s on Madison is known as a top dessert destination, and its heritage brown sugar pumpkin pie is routinely pegged as a top pick. Perfect for Turkey Day, this pastry has a buttery, flaky crust and a filling with an ideal combination of sugar and spice.
Classic Apple Pie
Hill Country Chicken
1123 Broadway, near West 25th Street
It’s no surprise Hill Country Chicken, known for Texas-Style home cooking, makes a great pie. Made with tart apples, a pinch of cinnamon and topped with a rich cheddar cheese lattice crust, this traditional pie was inspired by the founder’s grandmother Betty.
Momofuku Milk Bar
Milk Bar’s acclaimed pastry chef Christina Tosi’s signature pie is so tasty and creates such a euphoric feeling that one could easily become addicted. Crack pie, made with brown and white sugars, butter, cream, salt and a little corn flour, should definitely be consumed with caution.
Bourbon Ginger Pecan Pie
First Prize Pies
First Prize Pie’s bourbon ginger pecan won the first-annual Brooklyn Pie Bake-Off and motivated owner Allison Kave to start her business. The pie is made with toasted pecans, maple syrup, ginger (fresh, ground, and crystallized), and a healthy dose of the finest bourbon, which make this pie a very special treat!
Sour-Cream Apple-Walnut Pie
The Little Pie Company
424 West 43rd Street, between Ninth and 10th Avenues
One would hope that a bakery with pie in its name would excel in this department. The Little Pie Company’s best-selling item is also one of the city’s most sought after desserts, and is a unique twist on classic apple pie. It’s made with hand-sliced granny smith apples and fresh sour cream and is topped with brown sugar, cinnamon and walnut streusel.
