At newly opened Sugar and Plumm, famed pastry chef Pichet Ong is serving several slices for fall, including a key lime pie with an Oreo crust. The level of decadence in the slice is no surprise, as the boutique bistro is also a bakery, chocolateier, and self-proclaimed “purveyor of everything ‘yumm.’

Red Rooster Harlem is the place to go for down home cooking, and there’s no better way to top off your fried chicken dinner than with a slice of mud pie. Delicious as it may be, however, we prefer their warm apple pie, which has Cheddar cheese baked into the crust. It’s what you should be having on Thanksgiving.

Pastry Chef Christina Tosi is known for her unique takes on classic flavors, and this slice is no exception. The Crack Pie at New York’s infamous sweet shop is as addictive as the name sounds. A custard-like filling is sweet to almost cloying, but with a rich butterscotch-like flavor.

Four & Twenty Blackbirds consistently tops “best of” lists thanks to perfected pies. We already named their famous salted caramel apple pie as one of the city’s best apple treats for fall. The Brooklyn bakery’s black bottom oat pie is a crunchy oat-filled crust covers a custard filling which covers a bottom layer of decadent dark chocolate.
