Taste: Eat This Now: Pie in the Sky

This Thanksgiving, local food-aid organization MANNA will Strike It Rich. That’s the name of this decadent pie, its tender crust filled with cheesecake and topped with candied pecans, caramel and chocolate. The pie is one of five varieties available through Pie in the Sky, the nutritional assistance group’s biggest annual fund-raiser. (Proceeds provide MANNA’s ailing clients with holiday meals.) The city’s sweet tooth has been a sure bet for 10 straight Turkey Days; this holiday, MANNA expects to distribute 13,000 pies. November 16th is the deadline to place your order, for pickup at 43 area distribution sites on November 20th and 21st.

Order pies at 866-SKY-PIES or mannapa.org. Apple, pumpkin, sweet potato, pecan: $25; Strike it Rich: $35.
