You’re gonna need a bigger dinner table. When it comes to holiday dinners, only the upper crust of desserts will do. As you plan your final course, consult this com-pie-lation of local shops baking seasonal sweets.

Capo, 443 W. Broadway | Order deadline: Thursday, Dec. 21
The South Boston restaurant’s lemon meringue, apple blueberry crumble, banoffee (read: banana, toffee + whipped cream), and turtle chocolate pies can be made gluten-free. Don’t overlook their cornucopia of dessert options, like the peanut butter Oreo cheesecake, cake pop bouquets, and cinnamon crunch banana bread.

Fornax Bread Company, 27 Corinth St.
Find chocolate, banana, and Boston cream pies at this Roslindale bakery, plus apple, mixed berry, and blueberry varieties. Short on time? Order one of the meat pies or savory tarts filled with chicken, spinach, or sweet potato for dinner.

The Blue Frog Bakery, 3 Green St. | Order deadline: Wednesday, Dec. 20
Once you’ve placed an order for a pecan or double crust apple pie, take home a soft gingerbread cake — complete with a citrus glaze — or a traditional Yule log, frosted with chocolate ganache and meringue mushrooms.

Clear Flour Bread, 178 Thorndike St., Brookline
Try global treats like Apfelstreusel, raspberry linzer torte, iced gingerbread cake, Austrian nut cookies, and plum-filled berliners. Bonus: German Stollen will be available through Christmas Eve.

Hi-Rise Bread Company, 208 Concord Ave., Cambridge
Look for the five-inch tall pies, piled with mountains of apple filling. We dare you to resist the all-butter Stolle de Noël, made with lemon + orange peels, golden raisins, dried Zante currants, almonds, dark Haitian rum, and native wildflower honey.

Petsi Pies, 285 Beacon St., Somerville | Order deadline: Tuesday, Dec. 19
Shake up your holiday with an apple-pear-cranberry pie with walnuts, sweet potato pecan pie, or chocolate bourbon pecan pie. Chocolate lovers can’t miss the Mississippi mud pie, an indulgent blend of Belgian chocolate, brownie streusel, and chocolate cookie crust, completed with — what else? — a chocolate glaze. Even “Good Morning America” is a fan.
