Best Places to Order Thanksgiving Pies in St George Utah - 2015This is a list of the best places (in my personal opinion) to order Thanksgiving Pies in St George Utah.  I've tried them all and have come up with this list to share.  My first choice is always Croshaws Pies!  Thanksgiving pies from Croshaw's Gourmet Pies in St George are delicious and hard to get your hands on!  The holiday is quickly approaching and Croshaw's limits the number of pie orders they take, so order early. Choose from their yummy pumpkin pie, delicious pecan pie, fruity apple pie or tangy mint along with a couple of sugar free pies.Croshaw's Gourmet Pies is located in the heart of downtown St George at 175 W. 900 S. #8. Croshaw's phone number is 435-628-1700. It's tucked back behind a bank and sandwich shop off...
