Oh, we’re grateful all right. Firstly, for being able to gather this Thanksgiving safely at home with family and friends. And for pie. Basically, ALL the pumpkin desserts. Especially those we don’t have to bake ourselves. Here’s where to pre-order and grab ‘n’ go. —Catherine Dunwoody
the bench bakehouse. Owned by a husband-and-wife team, there’s French-style pumpkin pie, plus apple almond tarts and frozen bake-at-home tart shells at The Bench so you can fill them yourself and take credit for making “homemade” treats. Pre-order online.
delish gluten-free bakery. The lineup on top of the pumpkin and vegan pumpkin pies includes spiced cupcakes with Swiss buttercream, a new pumpkin pie bar and, for those who prefer cheese after dinner, a savoury cranberry brie puff pastry bake. Two locations, Vancouver and Port Coquitlam; visit here for more.
the pie hole. We’re liking the sounds of bourbon pecan pumpkin pie, plus regular and vegan pumpkin pies, available at both the Vancouver and Burnaby locations. Order yours here.
temper pastry. Individual pumpkin cheesecakes sound like post-turkey-time perfection. Visit here for more info and pick up from the West Vancouver location.
