Pie is good any time of the year, but as the weather changes, you may see a change in flavors too. Since popular pie ingredients like freshly picked pumpkins and apples become available during the fall months, these, along with other fall flavors might be what you start to see most. And as we all know, pie shops tend to get busier around the holidays, so it could be helpful to plan ahead when trying to snag a freshly baked pie. Whether you’re craving sweet or savory, a whole pie or just a slice, these shops can surely fix that pie itch.
