2016 Thanksgiving Menu

Our Pie Crust:

All of our Thanksgiving pies are made with unbleached pastry flour, butter, cream cheese, water and salt.  Our single crust pies (apple, pumpkin, pecan, and sweet potato) are rolled out in graham cracker crumbs, which give a wonderful crunch to the crust and prevent sogginess.  Our double crust pies, (marionberry and vegetarian mincemeat) bake up to golden brown with a crispy slightly sugary top.  All of our pies are 9" and serve 6 - 8 people.

 

Our Pies:

 

Pumpkin Pie

A custardy mixture of pumpkin, milk, heavy cream and the perfect combination of spices.  Indulge with some fresh whipped cream!   $17.00

Sweet Potato Pie

We roast cases of organic Garnet sweet potatoes to make a denser filling than pumpkin pie.  With less milk and cream, less sweetener and a minimum of spices, this favorite is capped off with a touch of molasses and brandy.  $18.00

Dutch Apple Pie

Hand sliced organic Granny Smiths and Golden Delicious apples from Washington State are mixed together to make this wonderful pie.  Lightly spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and fresh lemon juice, the juicy apples are topped with a streusel made with lots of butter and brown sugar.  $18.00

Pecan Pie

For people who think they don't like pecan pie.  For those whose past versions included too few pecans, too much teeth-jangling sugar and just not enough flavor.  Our take on the classic pecan pie includes brown sugar, a touch of corn syrup, eggs, butter to smooth things out, and just enough salt to balance everything.  Try it!  Its rich, so cut small portions after a big meal.                   $21.00 serves 8 - 10.

Marionberry Pie

Marionberries are from Marion, Oregon and are a hybrid of varieties of true blackberries and red raspberries.  They have a really deep winey flavor, and we complement that flavor by adding relatively little sugar.  This is the least sweet option of all our pies.  It has a double crust, with a slightly sugary top.  A year round favorite at Destination!  $18.00

Mincemeat Pie

Not your Grandmother's mincemeat and certainly like nothing out of jar, we've taken this Old World classic and updated it to our own modern tastes.   Instead of a scrappy meat bone, we cook lots of dried and fresh apples, raisins, currants and spices in apple juice until dark and tasty and vegetarian.  Then we finish it off with a healthy dose of brandy and fresh lemon juice.  After mellowing for a few days to let the flavors meld, it becomes the filling for a double crust pie that is a growing favorite year after year.  $19.00

Pumpkin Cheesecake

For the non-pie fans!  Very rich vanilla scented cheesecake, marbled with lightly spiced pumpkin cheesecake batter.  Rich and creamy.  8" cheesecake serves 10 - 12  $26.00

Dinner Rolls

A Destination Baking Company holiday tradition! Buttery, light, and soft, these are everyone's favorite dinner rolls.  Warm them up slightly for a great addition to your Thanksgiving feast. Available in white or wheat or mixed.  $5.00 dozen

 

Ordering Pies:

 

The last day to order pies is Sunday Nov. 20nd at 3:00 p.m.  We ask that all orders be prepaid.

Your order is available for pickup on Wednesday Nov. 23rd between 11:00 and 7:00 p.m.  Please try to bring your yellow duplicate with you and please realize that we will be baking continuously throughout the day.  For example, if your order is for 4:00 and you come to pick it up at 11:00, there is a good chance it won't be ready.

We welcome phone orders but because of rising costs, orders of less than $30.00 will be charged a service fee.  Come into the store to place your order, we are always happy to see you!

If by chance you miss our cut-off time for ordering, all is not lost.  We bake many extra pies on Wednesday, and they are available on a first come/first served basis.  Extra pies that are not spoken for are available after 4:00 p.m.  Not all pies will be ready at all times.

Thanks for making this a great Holiday Season.

We will be closed Thanksgiving Day and Friday November 25th.
