A pie! A pie! My kingdom for a pie!

Where can I get a pecan pie at the last minute in lower Manhattan or Park Slope, Brooklyn (or anywhere on the R) after 3:30pm today?

The bakery I ordered a pecan pie from messed up and gave me an apple crumble and they didn't have any to exchange. It is not the end of the world if I bring an apple pie to Thanksgiving, but a friend is already making one. Every place I have called has no more pies.

Cake Shop or Pinisi...both have what we call the OMG Pie (pecan pie and chocolate pecan pie). My uncle buys all the Thanksgiving pies and I can personally vouch for orgasmic pies from both places. Call asap though.

The Little Pie Company at 407 14th Street (between 9th/10th). Best Pies EVER.

The Little Pie Company has more branches then just the 14th street one. I was there about an hour ago. Most of the pies are pre-ordered but they are selling extras (which are going fast).

Call the place and see if they'll reserve one for you. They're great pies. I have one in my office fridge. If someone eats it, I will destroy them.

Huh. Little Pie's branch in the downstairs food court of Grand Central isn't listed on their web site.

If there are no bakery pecan pies available, get a Mrs. Smith's pie and bake it up. Make real whipped cream or bring really good ice cream.

Looks like making one is pretty darn easy and fast, especially if you get a store-bought pie shell.

Here's one.

Here's another.

Lot's more.

Best answer: If you still don't have any luck (you should call these places in advance), let me know and I can probably bake one up for you and you can pick it up tonight around 9:00 or so. Even quicker if you're okay with a store bought crust.

Best answer: Sweet Melissa's in Park Slope. I just called them. They can't reserve one, but they think there will be plenty left.

Lot's? Got a little apostrophe happy there. Now I am ashamed.

Response by poster: Evangeline, that is great, thank you so much. I will try Sweet Melissa's which is near where I live. I also appreciate your offer of baking one. I am going to talk to Sweet Melissa's myself and I might take you up on your offer. If so, I'll email like you suggested.

It's no problem. I love to bake. I live in Prospect Heights very near the museum, by the way, so I'm not too far from you.
