Astor Bake Shop – I love ABS for pie especially since they often dish up delectable creations and bake with seasonal ingredients such as figs, apples, pumpkins and the like. Here’s a recent fig and almond tart/pie that I have my eye on. 12-23 Astoria Blvd, Astoria. 718.606.8439

Martha’s Country Bakery – To put together a pie round-up and not include Martha’s would be a sin, so I have to give them a nod here. From pumpkin, blueberry, lemon meringue, blueberry, cherry, apple, sour cream apple, they’ve got it all! I love the buttery, crumbly crust on their pies and appreciate that the ingredients inside are chunky and rustic. 36-21 Ditmars Blvd, Astoria. 718.545.9737

Queens Comfort – While you won’t find pie on their menu everyday, they do bake some on occasion and when they do, you can believe it’ll be creative and tasty. Look for non traditional pies such as this Pennsylvania Dutch Peanut Butter Whoopie Pie. Make sure you check their Instagram often where they disclose new things they’re working on. 40-09 30th Avenue, Astoria. 646.597.8687
