When you gather around a beautiful dining room table this Thanksgiving and sit down in front of a plate of turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing, don’t forget the most important rule: Save room for dessert. Thanksgiving isn’t complete without the perfect piece of pie. Or two. Maybe three, if you loosen your belt a couple of notches. After all, Thanksgiving is the ultimate cheat day. In case you’re not a baking pro, here are five top Austin bakeries and restaurants that are selling ready-to-go Thanksgiving pies. Whether you’re looking for the classic apple, pumpkin or pecan, your perfect pie is waiting.
