While your Thanksgiving table might be a little less crowded this year than in years past, there's no reason why you still can't enjoy a socially distant dessert with your nearest and dearest. If you can’t see all your family or friends this Thanksgiving holiday, go ahead and ship them one of these delicious pies instead. We separated each one by state, so absolutely everyone from grandma and grandpa to mom and dad can have a piece of home this Turkey Day. Just remember to order one for yourself too and hop on Zoom with the family when you're ready to dig in!

Dangerously Delicious Pies, Baltimore

Baltimore Bomb Pie is a Maryland twist on chess pie: It has a similar creamy custard center, but then it’s smothered with fudgy Berger cookies, a local treat. Dangerously Delicious Pies sends its pies baked and ready to eat, but the owners suggest warming them up so the fudge bits get perfectly gooey.

Kermit’s Key West Key Lime Shoppe, Key West

Tourists have been bringing Kermit Carpenter’s legendary pies home from Key West for more than 20 years. He’s famous for serving chocolate-dipped frozen slices at the shop — so if you order a pie, you might want to throw in a few of those, too.

Willamette Valley Pie Company, Salem

Fruit breeders at Oregon State University created the marionberry in 1948, and a perfect pie filling was born: It tastes like a cross between a blackberry and a raspberry. Willamette Valley Pie Company, which started as a berry grower and cannery, now grows about 12 million pounds of fruit every year to make its pies.

My Sugar Pie, Zionsville

Amish and Shaker communities started making sugar pies (also called sugar cream pies) in the 1800s when bakers couldn’t get fresh fruit, and over time the custardy dessert became an Indiana staple. My Sugar Pie owner Kelly Maucere uses her mother’s crust recipe; on busy days she puts her family to work helping in the kitchen!

Omni Parker House Hotel, Boston

When this now iconic dessert was invented here in 1856, it was called Parker House Chocolate Cream Pie. The name evolved, but the recipe has been the same for almost two centuries: a sponge cake base with a pastry cream filling and a chocolate glaze. Some argue it’s more cake than pie.

Grand Traverse Pie Company, Traverse City

Northern Michigan grows some of the best tart cherries in the world, and when they’re at peak ripeness in early summer, they’re picked and preserved for Grand Traverse Pie Company’s year-round best-selling pie, the Cherry Crumb. The National Cherry Festival named this its signature pie.

Kern’s Kitchen, Louisville

Derby Day parties at the Melrose Inn in Prospect, KY, were legendary in the 1950s, and the Kern family, who ran the kitchen, wanted to dream up a dessert that was just as fabulous. They landed on a sticky-sweet chocolate and walnut pie but couldn’t agree on a name — "Derby-Pie" was pulled from a hat! The Kerns still make the original recipe at their family bakery.

Two Fat Cats Bakery, Portland

Maine is home to more than 60,000 acres of wild blueberry fields, and the sweet-tart berries are the secret to this classic pie. In Portland, Two Fat Cats is known for making everything from scratch: They even sweeten their pies with homemade brown sugar made from fresh molasses.

PieTisserie, Oakland

Pumpkin pie isn’t exactly regional, but California is one of the country’s largest growers of the gourd, and roasted pumpkin pie is a beloved holiday special at PieTisserie in Oakland. The bakery puts a twist on the classic by baking the filling in a chocolate crust.
