We saved the best (or fanciest, at least) for last. Even though the turkey is the main attraction, pie is not negotiable. For many of us, it's not Thanksgiving unless we have some pumpkin pie. Or pecan. Or apple. To do this, make sure you have a pie plate to bake it in and serve it in. Now this is some high falutin' pieware here. Equal parts art and bakeware, Michael Aram's White Orchid pie dish is handcrafted in hammered stainless steel with sculptural blooms capturing the grace of orchids. The porcelain casserole dish doubles as a server and baking dish. So yes, use it in the oven up to 550 degrees F. Handwash the orchid part, but you can put the porcelain casserole dish in the dishwasher. That dish is about 2 inches high and 14.5 inches in diameter.
