Where To Buy Local – Thanksgiving Desserts
This week families and friends will gather together to celebrate Thanksgiving. It’s a holiday rich in reflection and food.
Turkey, ham, stuffing, candied yams… many delicious foods will be enjoyed. And just when you think you can’t eat another bite – DESSERT!
I am sure plenty of you enjoy baking from scratch. Maybe each year you make grandma’s famous pumpkin pie or you’ve been “Pinning” dozens of recipes you just can’t wait to bake. But, if you are running out of time or it’s just easier to pick something up from the store, I’m on your side with some tasty ideas!
The best part… they are all from locally-owned businesses because remember, it’s important to shop local this holiday season.
If it’s pie you are looking for, you may want to try Summertime Pies. Their food truck is a staple at Gazebo Gardens and Enzo’s Table.
They are taking orders for 9” pies, but you better act fast. Monday, November 21st is the last day to order. Flavors include Pumpkin Cheesecake, Dutch Cranberry Apple and Bourbon Pecan. Pies are $17 each. To order call Sherry at 559-999-7496.
The Frosted Cakery
The Frosted Cakery in Fresno’s Tower District is famous for their cakes and cupcakes, but for Thanksgiving they are also serving up pie!
