Bakery / store-bought Thanksgiving pies - how was yours?

The pie I bought from Bear Claw Bakery in Pinole is pure pumpkin pie perfection. The pumpkin filling has this wonderful, rich smoothness has a butteriness to it. The spice is very muted but complements and accents the pumpkin flavor. Nice shortening crust with maybe a bit of butter in it.

I haven't bought one of these before because they don't sell slices and I didn't want to commit $10 to a whole pie. Really glad I did this year. It is one of the best I've had in my life.

So where did you buy your pie ... what type ... and how was it?
