Thanks To These Local Bakeries, You Can Bring the Perfect Pie This Thanksgiving


Of course, you can’t show up to Thanksgiving dinner empty-handed. However, you don’t necessarily have to slave over your Gaslight Commons stove, either! The perfect addition to your Thanksgiving dinner is a homemade pie, but don’t worry – you can leave the baking to the experts.

If you want to bring a pie to Thanksgiving that your fellow guests will rave about, check out these bakeries located near your Gaslight Commons apartment. And don’t worry… no one has to know that you didn’t lift a finger!

The Pie Store, located at 100 Watchung Ave, Montclair which is 20 minutes from your Gaslight Commons apartment, is a bakery specializing in savory and sweet British pies, as well as groceries imported from the U.K.

We Americans may feel we invented the deliciously flaky pies that will adorn our Thanksgiving tables, but like the Pilgrims themselves, the concept of sweets or savories wrapped in dough actually came from across the pond! Thanks to the Pie Store, all you have to do to serve one of these heritage creations is warm it up in the oven.

The Able Baker, located at 187 Maplewood Ave, Maplewood which is five minutes from your Gaslight Commons apartment, is a cozy bakery with a few tables, selling hand-held treats like scones and cupcakes as well as coffee and pies.

The Able Baker is the expert when it comes to fall pies such as apple, buttermilk, pumpkin and peach! All pies range from $25-$29 and the selection changes daily. Plus, the Able Baker is all about the perfect crust – they know that pie crust needs to provide a hearty balance for the sweetness that sits atop it!
