I'm traveling for Thanksgiving and won't have time to bake from scratch as I'm pretty much doing the rest of the meal. I heard someone here say Costco pumpkin pies are really good. There are bakeries here that are famous for pies but there are usually lines wrapped around the block to pick them up and I don't have time for that shit and I have a Costco card. Are their apple pies good?

I had the apple pie, a long time ago. It was humongous. The apple part was good. The crust part was OK (not great). IIRC, it was lattice. The top crust was probably better than the bottom crust, which makes sense.
And, why do people make the traveling person responsible for so much food?

The Tuxedo cake, last time I bought it about a year ago was not very good. I've also tried the cheese cake at Costco, also not very good. The pies I have had luck with are the Apple, the pumpkin and the key lime (in season.) As for cakes, it is the round all occasion cake in vanilla or chocolate that are consistently good. I also like the pound cakes they sell three to a package with fresh fruit and whipped cream. Excellent pound cakes. I live in the South so Publix is my go to for cakes and pies, unless I'm serving a large gathering. I will say that Costco's large chicken pot pie is delicious and easily serves about 8 to 12 people.

Go to 7-Eleven or QT. Grab some Hostess Fruit Pies for the number of guests you expect to attend, This way every guest will have his/her/their own individual pie. If they’re too stuffed after the main course, they can put it in their pocket and take it home to eat later. This is obviously the best suggestion you’re gonna get.

Buy a package of Pillsbury pie crust(s).
Buy some Comstock canned pie filling.
Get a pie dish and roll out one of the pie crusts into it.
Empty Comstock pie filling into it. However much you like. Whatever kind you like. I wouldn't suggest attempting a pumpkin pie though, stick with the gummy fruit shit.
Place remaining pie crust on top. Press the edges of the two crusts together. If you want to be fancy, do a scallop edge design using a spoon back if it's too difficult to figure out how to do it the traditional way. Cut some slits or holes (your choice). Make sure you don't make it too perfect looking - you're making homemade pie, after all.
Sprinkle with coarse sugar for an extra added flair. If you care, cover the edges of the crust halfway with foil or crust guards halfway through baking so they don't overcook/turn too brown.
Serve with Cool Whip (extra creamy) and a smile in your frilly white apron.

Trader Joe's has been voted the best pie crust. So not Pillsbury. And don't buy pie filling. Look it is simple to chop up apples in chunks as for applesauce. Put them in a pot with about an inch or two of water cinnamon, and brown sugar and partially cook them. Partially. there should be a little bit of liquid. If it's too watery add a teaspoon of cornstarch to the pot and stir. Then dump them into the pie shell, add more cinnamon and brown sugar if you think they need it. and put the top crust on. Bake it for about 30 minutes on 400 or until the crust is brown. Sometimes the bottom crust can be indercooked. But make sure you poke holes in the bottom crust with a fork so it doesn't bubble up while baking.ht want to bake the bottom crust for about 15 minutes before you add the apples.

I've made both sweet potato and pumpkin pies, and to tell you the truth, there isn't all that much difference between them -- with the possible exception of texture. Neither pumpkins nor sweet potatoes have much flavor on their own, and since they pies usually contain the same spices, the overall flavor is very similar.
BTW, canned pumpkin usually doesn't even contain 100% "pumpkin." Since many squashes are very mild-flavored, and since there's no legal definition of "pumpkin," they use other squashes in canned pumpkin.

[quote] what's wrong with cheesecake at Thanksgiving?
Nothing, if you're 300 pounds and having dinner for one.
But literally everyone else on the entire planet would be looking for either a pumpkin pie or, if one must, an autumn season fruit pie.

OP doesn't say how he gets to his family in Bumfucque, but he does have a Costco card. When I visit my family in Bugtussle, I fly to the nearest city (then drive 3 hours) where I can pick up any Costco necessaries. Surely he can get a pie from the Costco nearest his destination.

Bumfucque sounds très chic, r131. I wonder if it's somewhere in Québec?

These pies can be bought on any corner, any day and time of the week. They are homemade, but are often very exotic tasting to those who have never eaten one.

I read recently that Patti LaBelle's confections are quite good. I've seen them at Target and they do look good. She has cobblers and pies. They look far better than the typical grocery store pies.

Even the best store bought pies are usually too sweet.

There's not enough salt in store-bought pies and sweets. Salt (in the crust, etc.) balances out the sweet and gives you some satisfaction and balance on your palate.

Yes I find store bought crusts way way too salty and I use salt generously in my home cooking. But it's too much for even me .

I got a free sample of Publix Pumpkin pie yesterday, and it was very good. The crust was exceptional. But I prefer their Sweet Potato Pie.

I’ve made a pumpkin cheesecake with a ginger snap crust before and it was very good. I may make a small batch of individual mini cheesecake bites since there are just three of us this year.
I’m not a huge fan of pie. I will have a small piece if it’s homemade in appreciation of all the effort that went into it. But if it’s a store bought pie it’s easy for me to say no thanks.

R158 the basic membership is about $60 a year. Do you have someone you can go in on it with? My sister and her former roommate still have their joint membership. They don't check very closely at all. You flash your card as you walk in and you use t he barcode or membership number when you're at the check out.
