This seems like a timely topic. I can't bake very well, so where are some good places in the Trianlge to buy a nice Pumkin or Apple Pie for Turkey Day?

I love love love the pies from Angus Barn (my cousin works there and contributes the pies for thanksgiving and christmas). I have also had great pies from whole foods.

This year I am making a pumpkin cheesecake..........YUM!

My wife makes the best banana cream and chocolate creme pies. When combine there is no better desert. Well, maybe her chocolate souffle.

My husband makes the best Apple Pie (his mother's recipe) and our daughter has requested that.

I might make a pumpkin roll or something similar....it's always fun to try something different.....haven't looked up recipes yet.

Also, will second the suggustion of the Angus barn's pies. I've had the chance to have them a few times at friends' homes...very yummmy.

Snap, Pumpkin Cheesecake for the third year in a row. I bought all the ingredients last week and then could not resist making it early, and um, eating it early too. Pumpkin Cheesecake #2 will be prepared on Wednesday evening.

I'm making a chocolate chip pie (my father-in-law's favorite) and a banana-blueberry cream cheese pie. I was going to make a buttermilk pie, but hubby likes the cream cheese pie better.

I baked a pecan pie, Paula Deen's chocolate fudge pie and my mom's apple pie this morning. I'll add a Pumkin Gooey cake on Wed eve and my sister is bringing a juniors cheesecake. I can't wait!

Susie, have you made Paula Deen's pumpkin gooey cake before? I made it last year for a big Thanksgiving party. It is sooooooo sweet! I didn't even use all of the confectioner's sugar she has in the recipe, but it was still over-powering. Some people really liked it, but for me it was so sweet that I could barely taste the pumpkin at all. Just an FYI!

Does any other locally-owned businesses - other than Angus Barn - make good pies? I enjoy baking, but since there's only two of us, sometimes I'd rather go out for desert than to have a whole pie sitting around, tempting me! I recently went to the Cheesecake Factory & had their pumpkin cheesecake (to die for!), but I honestly prefer locally-owned restaurants.

Twisted Fork at Triangle Town Center has incredible desserts, and they are available to purchase whole.

Hayes Barton Cafe & Dessertery also has incredible desserts. I think they're more known for desserts than their meals.

With either place, it's probably a good idea to order ahead.
