On a cool, crisp, Autumn day, nothing beats a warm pie baked with love and great ingredients! Can't you smell the wonderful aroma of apples and cinnamon, reminiscence of Gramma's kitchen each September? How about the distinct fragrance of pumpkins, and spice in October?
Harvest time is an excellent opportunity to splurge on seasonal delights such as pies and Durham offers a great pie selection. We narrowed it down to these 3 amazing pie shops located near our luxury apartments in Durham, NC.
It's a cozy little shop with the best handmade pies, located in Old East Durham. The owners have been selling pies made from scratch since 2015 and opened this amazing storefront in March of 2018. These pies are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. They will do more than just delight your taste buds. Each pie is baked with seasonal fruits and vegetables, so the menu is always changing. The ingredients are locally sourced because supporting the local farmers and producers is important to East Durham Bake Shop. They still make each pie by hand and from scratch, with minimal use of commercial equipment to present you the best pie they can. Stop by their shop and watch them work in the kitchen (really, it's incredible!). Check in often as their pies are always seasonal. Be sure to try the yummy Bourbon Caramel Apple Pie this Fall before it's too late!
The Pie Hole is an eccentric, locally owned and operated pie specialty place in Durham that opened in 2017. This pie spot is never a disappointment. Each pie is made from scratch daily. The offerings are eccentric and anything from the ordinary. This autumn grab a slice or two of the Maple Custard Pie. Who doesn't love maple in a pie? Feel more like apples this fall? Try Mom's Apple Crumble, it's made with 10 (yes, 10!) entire apples in each pie.
As the weather cools, and Autumn approaches, it's the perfect time for pumpkin pies. Stop by for a slice of the Mad Hatter's Pumpkin Pie! Each of these pies is made with a hand-rolled, flaky crust, and only the very, very best ingredients. This organic pumpkin pie filling is creamy, with a mousse-like texture and the spices- they will make your mouth water and your taste buds dance!
