We’re officially in the lead-up to Thanksgiving, that yearly cornucopia of gratefulness and good eating.

And it’s not just the turkey, the stuffing or the mashed potatoes we’re talking about.

Central to many of our Thanksgiving experiences is what comes after the main course. We’re talking about pie.

Pumpkin, pecan, apple, sweet potato, chess, lemon meringue … you get the idea.

Many readers, we’re sure, enjoy making their own pies, but if you’re not a home baker — or if you’re merely hankering for a pre-Thanksgiving pie preview — we want your recommendations for where to get the best pie in Johnson County this month.

Tell us the place you go and the slice you like to get.
