Where to Order Holiday Pies in Seattle

You'll be a holiday hero with a little help from these bakeries

Pumpkin pie.

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). Or perhaps you are, but you've got enough on your plate with savory feast prep. During pie season, why not let Seattle's sweetest professionals help?

(Want to skip cooking and cleanup this year and dine out instead? Check out Eater's recommendations for where to eat on Christmas Eve and on Christmas Day.)

From traditional favorites to fantastic Asian-influenced fusions, bakeries are getting ready for every Christmas party, Menorah lighting, Kwanza celebration, and annual Festivus airing of the grievances. A beautiful pie — flaky crust, succulent fruit, rich cream, a delicate balance of sugar and salt — will cap off any gathering with aplomb. Just be sure to mind the fast-approaching ordering deadlines for these bakeries — the only thing worse than baking a bad dessert is forgetting to order a good one.
