The holidays are here and pie is something we all can enjoy come Christmas, or in the case of these few places anytime.

NYUP.com ranked the best bakeries to get pie in Upstate New York and sadly the list of 13 only produced two that are in the Capital Region. Here they are.

  • PIE SQUARED:  3028 Route 43, Averill Park
  • PUTNAM MARKET: 431 Broadway, Saratoga Springs

I've never had either but judging by both of their Facebook pages I probably should. Check their pages out and be the judge yourself.

Those two also show me that maybe I should delve a little deeper than just apple pie and pumpkin pie. However they are both holiday staples in my family. The one that seems the most appetizing or is peaking my curiosity most is one of the ones at Pie Squared which is a mixture of apples, blueberries and raspberries.
