Yeah, you're a functioning adult (basically) and you can follow a recipe (barely). You've made a pie or two (roughly). But if you're being truly honest with yourself, you're not a baker (sadly). With everything else going on in the kitchen for Thanksgiving prep, one of the two biggest pie holidays of the year, why try to make your own dessert?
This year, leave it to the professionals. Spend your time doing so much more than baking desserts that disappoint. Here's the go-to list for Seattle's must-have baked goods this Thanksgiving, from pecan pie with bourbon and dark chocolate to almond and fig tart, with plenty of pumpkin pie and even upside-down cakes mixed in. Be sure to mind the fast-approaching ordering deadlines for these bakeries — the only thing worse than baking a bad pie is forgetting to order a good one.
