I am just not an apple pie kind of gal. I have been asked to bring one for thanksgiving.. where can I find a good one?? Help!

I know you are probably in the District, but Mom's Apple Pie Company in Herndon makes great pies. It is all they do. I don't know if they sell at any of the farmer's markets but you may want to call them. They are seriously good. Moms Apple Pie Co.

I second the Mom's recommendation, particularly if you get the crumb-topped versions, and Potomac Vegetable Farms on Route 7 carries the pies (assuming they're still open this late in the year.) Otherwise, they've got locations on Van Buren St. in Herndon, and on Sterling Blvd off Route 28, where the pies are actually made.

I have to confirm the Mom's Apple Pie Co. recommendations. I am acquaintences with one of the family members who own the business. Yes, they do grow their produce on their own farm near the river in Leesburg. Very nice family and great pies. The fruit pies get a great balance of sweet to tart. They were featured recently on the Food Network show with Paula Deen's sons. Can't say much about that TV show, but the pies are something special. And local is always a plus.

Stopped in Friday after court because we were going to see friends this weekend and I thought pie would be a good hostess gift.  I got a raspberry pie for them, that we got pieces of, it was delicious.  I picked up a lemon chess pie for us, that I also thought was good, and I had raspberry peach crumble on the way back which had great flavor, but could have been a bit crisper, but wasn't bad by any means.  I have been out in Loudoun courts more and more so it's nice to find little places not far from the courthouse to stop into for a quick lunch or a snack on way back to the office.

My daughter and I dropped by here a few weeks ago and got this pie. Wow. It was one of the best pies I've ever had.

HOWEVER, the lemon meringue I bought was terrible. The lemon curd and pie crust itself was great, but the meringue was way past its prime.

Yeah, I am VERY picky about meringue, so I decided to not go down that road.  I would rather just make a meringue pie if it isn't verified as really good.  I think the peach raspberry would have been amazing fresh out of the oven, I think it was just a little soggy from sitting.  If I hadn't been in such a hurry to eat it, I could have popped it i the toaster oven at work which probably would have been really good.
