I grew up near Peterboro, New Hampshire, where these baskets are made. We always used and gifted them year round, but they came most in handy during Thanksgiving when we had to carry our pumpkin pies over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house. Quaint yet functional, these baskets are super easy to use. Just place one pie on the bottom of the basket, put a tray over that, and then another pie. Close the lid, and away you go, pies unscathed by wrappers or bags or squishable boxes.
