Where to Get Your Homemade Thanksgiving Pies (and More) in St. Louis
Face it: You need a pie. | T.J. Errettenns
Your family gave you one job: Bring the dessert. We all know you can't just throw some in some slice-and-bake cookies in the oven and call it a day. This is Thanksgiving, and everyone's expecting a pie. Pumpkin. Or pecan. Or anything autumn-sounding, really. Do the holiday some justice and don't pick up something premade from the grocery store. There are plenty of delicious bakeries around town that are taking orders for that perfect pie.
