Beyond Bread Back Dough pies

These 6-inch pumpkin cream cheese and pecan pies are $7.50 each at Beyond Bread's pie shop, Back Dough. 

Is Thanksgiving complete without pie for dessert? But when holiday prep already requires so much time in the kitchen — or a quick call to a caterer — baking the pie(s) can send a harried holidaymaker over the edge. Instead, consider helping them (or yourself) out by supporting one of these local bakers in the process!
