We will be open for pickup of pre-ordered pies from 4-6 pm on Tuesday, November 22, and Wednesday, November 23, and from 10-Noon on Thanksgiving Day.
Thanksgiving at Ella Bonella is all about pies. We offer more variety at Christmas.
We have to be laser-focused at Thanksgiving, which means that we need to stick with the pies that we’re offering.
This depends on when and how many orders come in. When we approach our limit, we send out a “Last Call” email. Sign up on the website to keep up to date. Typically, final cutoff is sometime between the Thursday and Saturday before Thanksgiving.
No, we're busy getting ready for the big week!
We are geared up for large pies only during Thanksgiving week.
We will not be open for business Saturday, November 27 and Sunday, November 28. We’ll be nursing a pie hangover that weekend!
a. Fruit pies do not need to be refrigerated, but will last longer if kept in the fridge. You may wish to heat them up in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes before serving
b. Pumpkin and Pecan pies should be refrigerated
c. Custard pies must be refrigerated
In a pinch. The pie should be okay for Thanksgiving, particularly if you keep it refrigerated, but it won’t be ideal – the bottom crust will likely start to get soggy.
Mom, is that you???? My parents’ generation (people married in the 50’s and early 60’s) were the first generation to have a “Deep Freeze” in the basement. That big freezer was a godsend to moms of that era. Ladies my mom’s age L-O-V-E to freeze things, and they will tell you that things stay good FOREVER in the freezer!. Personally, I think that when you freeze things you lose texture and flavor, but millions of women in their 70’s and 80’s would argue with me. You should NEVER, however, freeze any kind of custard, and that includes pumpkin and pecan pies (and there are those who will argue this point, too!).
