The holiday season is upon us, which means there’s no better time to lose yourself in an entire tin of pie. And while baking a pie can be a bit of a hassle, luckily, there’s the magic of delivery. We’ve put together a list of the best places to order pies online that'll make it to your doorstep in time for the festivities. The bakeries on this list all offer fast shipping across the U.S. and have delicious signature treats along with holiday classics—and whether you prefer something sweet and chocolatey or a more savory option, there’s a dessert for everyone.

1. Milk Bar

Milk Bar

What Milk Bar lacks in variety, it makes up for in taste. You’ll only be able to order two pies here, but one—the Milk Bar pie—is what helped put this bakery on the map. Created by chef Christina Tosi, this internet-famous dessert was and has a custard-like center made of milk, egg yolks, sugar, butter, and a crumbled oatmeal cookie crust. The pie costs around $46 and the brand ships nationwide. You can also get free shipping on orders over $75.

Goode Co. Barbecue, a restaurant in Houston, Texas, offers pecan pies like no other. The pies are made from fresh Texas pecans that are harvested near the Brazos River. These pecans create a rich, gooey filling and will likely be the best you’ve ever had. The bakery ships the dessert, which is $59, in an exquisite pine box emblazoned with the company’s slogan, “You might give some serious thought to thanking your lucky stars you’re in Texas” across the top. Fortunately, you don't need to be in the Lone Star state to savor the taste of this delicacy. It ships for free nationwide, courtesy of Goldbelly.

3. Bake Me A Wish!

Bake Me A Wish

Bake Me A Wish! has a super-cute name and an even cuter story. In his first year away from home, founder Josh Kaye wanted to send his mother her favorite cake for her birthday. Unfortunately, none of the bakeries in Manhattan were doing cakes by mail. He decided to fill the gap, and Bake Me A Wish! was born. The company now delivers baked goodies, including pies, across the U.S. Their bountiful blueberry pie is made with fresh blueberries and starts at around $45. If blueberries aren’t your thing, there’s also sour cherry pie, strawberry rhubarb pie, and other sweet treats to choose from. Bake Me A Wish! offers next-day delivery if you order before 4:40 p.m. EST, and orders received after 4:40 p.m. EST Monday through Friday will be processed the following business day.

Four & Twenty Blackbirds is the product of the sisters Melissa and Emily Elsen, who have made a huge splash in Brooklyn, New York, with their amazing pies. Originally from South Dakota, the Elsen sisters are known for their salted caramel apple pie. The duo uses high-quality, locally sourced ingredients to make their goodies, and also offers a salty honey pie and a bittersweet chocolate pecan option. Though Four & Twenty Blackbirds pies are a little on the pricey side, coming in at around $79, it will be money well-spent. If you use free shipping, you won't get one in time for Christmas, but you can still have one delivered in time for your New Year's celebration if you order via Goldbelly, which ships nationwide.
