You can’t really bring up Thanksgiving without your favorite pie combination creeping into the conversation. Pies are as big a part of the holiday tradition as football, turkey and family. So we went down to The Crust & Crumb Baking Co. and watched owner Alison Ladman make some of her tasty creations. In the 24 hours before Crust & Crumb closes for Thanksgiving, the ovens will be cranking out pies in staggering numbers to fill all the orders. And while you can no longer place an order, Ladman makes lots of extras for people who forgot to call one in but need to bring a dessert to the family get together. After all, as Ladman puts it “Pie is a food group.” Crust & Crumb is open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday and will be pumping out pies like pumpkin, maple bourbon pecan apple streusel and many others throughout the day.
