3701 N. Youngs Blvd.
Ingrid’s just seems to get everything right in the baking category, and pies are no exception. With plenty of opportunities to enjoy pie over the next month or so, Ingrid’s has more than 20 kinds to choose from. Pumpkin is made with “the right amount of spice,” while German chocolate has cocoa, coconut and pecans. Or opt for the chocolate meringue with so much fluffy meringue on top it barely fits in the box.
La Baguette Bakery & Cafe
2100 W. Main St., Norman
Thanksgiving might not be a French holiday, but that doesn’t stop La Baguette from baking holiday favorites. Both La Baguette stores in Norman carry pies year-round, and during the holidays, they add pumpkin and pecan. If you’re in the mood for something different, try a decadent chocolate pecan pie, coconut cream or chocolate cream pie. The stores also offer a variety of fruit pies and key lime.
1711 NW 16th St.
If you can’t get a great holiday pie at Pie Junkie, you can’t get one anywhere. Fortunately, the shop in the Plaza District has unique holiday offerings in addition to their regular lineup. Try pumpkin, pumpkin walnut crumble, pecan, orange bourbon pecan, apple crumble, apple cranberry crumble or drunken turtle. If you just need your holiday pie fix, Pie Junkie is one of the few places you can stroll into, have a slice of pie and then be on your way.
Braum’s ice Cream & Dairy Stores
Various metro locations
With stores around the metro, Braum’s knows how to do it up right when it comes to pies (and just about everything else).
During the holidays, everyone’s favorite ice cream and dairy stores add pumpkin pie (and pumpkin ice cream) and apple cranberry pie. For procrastinators, Braum’s stores will be open on Thanksgiving Day. Just ask at the counter and the friendly staff will heat up that frozen pie for you.
2201 SW 74th St.
Since 1982, Pioneer Pies has been baking some of the best pies in the metro. The pies can be ordered at the store or online and are available for mail delivery. With more than 25 kinds to choose from, grab a traditional pumpkin pie or celebrate the holidays like the British with a mince pie.
For those who can’t eat sugar — or just don’t want it — it offers a number of sugar-free options.
County Line Bakery
121 E. Waterloo Rd., Edmond
Open for just over a year, County Line offers 11 different pies. Don’t miss the seasonal pumpkin pie made with Cinderella pumpkins, a French heirloom that resembles the pumpkin that was turned into a carriage to take Cinderella to the ball. The best-seller is the coconut cream pie, and other favorites are chocolate cream and the seasonal strawberry pie. To make sure you get the pie you desire, it’s best to order about three days in advance.
Uptown Grocery Co.
1230 W. Covell Road, Edmond
Head to to Uptown Grocery in north Edmond, the brainchild of Buy for Le$$ owners Hank and Susan Binkowski. The store has pies aplenty with everything from pumpkin and pecan to tasty holiday additions like caramel apple nut and pecan praline.
Cream pies are available in the chocolate, lemon, banana or coconut varieties. The store also offers sugar-free fruit pies with all the flavor, minus that pesky sugar.
