What are the Best Pies to order by Mail for the holidays?

We will never say “no” to a good slice of layer cake. Or a cupcake. We’ll stipulate that up front. However, it must be said that we will also happily always cross the street for a good piece of pie.

Pie might be the most underrated dessert of them all. Not only is it versatile – you can fill it with just about anything – but its flaky, buttery crust is hard to beat. And lucky for pie lovers everywhere, fall and winter are pie’s time to shine. We might love cake and ice cream in the summer months, but there’s something about pie that is perfect for the holidays.

The Best Gourmet Mail-Order Pies to buy Right Now

1. Three Brothers Bakery

How could we not start with this iconic Texas spot? With boxes proudly marked “Best Mail-Order Pies,” it’s as if they knew we were putting together this guide for you. Their beloved pecan ($44.99) and chocolate fudge pecan  ($44.99) pies are both available for shipping, and so is the absurd (and absurdly delicious) dessert that made Three Brothers famous: the Pumpecapple Piecake ($399). That’s three enormous layers of cake, stuffed with three entire pies, and topped with cream cheese icing and caramel drizzle. If you want a taste of something you’ll never forget, this is the seasonal treat you need.

2. Four & Twenty Blackbirds

3. Milk Bar

Milk Bar has come a long way since they first opened their doors in 2008. But even though their cakes are legend, and you can now find their cookies at Target, we think the Milk Bar Pie ($46) might still be the best item on the menu. Gooey, buttery goodness with just the right amount of salt, this pie is unlike anything we’ve ever eaten. And lucky for all of us – it now comes in a special pumpkin variety. And if you’re craving cake instead? You have to try their apple cider donut cake ($56) this holiday season.

4. Blue Owl Bakery

Missouri’s Blue Owl Bakery first opened as “From the Kitchen of Mary” in 1983. Almost forty years later, they are still going strong, shipping their signature Levee High Caramel Pecan Pie ($109) through Goldbelly. Piles of sweet apple encrusted in a dome of dough, caramel, and pecans: you’ve never seen a pie like this before. You can also choose between a dozen other delicious desserts, including their butterscotch pecan pie ($59) and their pumpkin gooey butter cheesecake ($85).

5. Centerville Pie Co.

Call us crazy, but we don’t think pie has to be limited to the dessert course. Savory pies don’t get nearly enough attention, but the ones at Centerville Pie Co are here to hold your interest. Try the buffalo chicken  or the BBQ pulled pork, or “Oprah’s Favorite” signature chicken pie ($69 each).  If reading this has made you hungry, you may want to select their choose-your-own-adventure two pack ($109) for twice as much pie.

6. Bourke Street Bakery

If we have you feeling ready for savory pies, then here’s a second option for you – Australia’s Bourke Street Bakery is shipping their miniature meat pies from their New York outpost. We recommend the twelve pack ($149) order of their beef pies: seasoned with onion, celery, garlic, thyme and red wine, you’re definitely going to want to eat more than one. Add these to any holiday meal for a little taste of Aussie comfort food.

8. Mr. Tod’s

It doesn’t get better than Jersey’s Mr. Tod’s. Pies are their specialty, and you can choose between their key lime minis ($74.99) and 10”inch pumpkin pie ($45) for this holiday season. The pumpkin is prepared with all our favorite fall spices, and would make the perfect Thanksgiving pie.

9. Dangerously Delicious Pies

Baltimore is home to some pies that are… dangerously delicious. Choose from both savory sweet options on Goldbelly, including pies so imaginative you never would have dreamed them up yourself. Have you ever heard of a pie stuffed with pancake batter ($69)? Neither had we. Of course, if you’re struggling to make a choice, you can’t go wrong with the Baltimore Bomb Pie ($69), which is filled with fudge, cookies, and vanilla chess. It’s their best seller.

10. The Pie Hole

The Pie Hole is the inventor of – you guessed it – the pie hole. These teeny tiny tarts are somewhere between a donut hole and a pie, and you can try every single flavor with this  assorted pack ($69). But our favorite whimsical offering from the Los Angeles shop is the Cereal Killer Pie ($65). Packed with froot loops and a sweet cream cheese filling, this colorful delight is one of a kind.

11. Achatz Handmade Pie Co.

Achatz wins the award for attention to detail. Not only do they fill their pies with the best possible ingredients, but they also offer versions with different crusts: single crust, double crust, and even ones made without wheat. We love their full array of fruit pies, but we were especially happy to see their chocolate cream ($79). Topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings, this is the decadent dessert we want to have at our holiday tables.

12. Bubby’s

Bubby’s is the place to go in NYC for a little late-night comfort food, and now everyone can enjoy a slice of that experience themselves. They’re shipping three of their signature pies for the holiday: their sour cherry pie, their apple whiskey  and their pecan maple ($75 each) to all fifty states, so you can taste a little of that Bubby’s magic no matter where you live. Pies ship the day after they are ordered.
