The PIE-fect National Pie Day Celebration

January 23, 2018

Happy National Pie Day! The traditional pie dessert that we know and love has definitely evolved over the years. The Oxford English Dictionary notes that the word pie was a popular word in the 14th century. In the beginning ages of pie, pie crust wasn’t even eaten, only the filling was consumed. The early pies were predominantly meat pies, as well. The early Romans ate their pies from reeds and in early settled America, pies were eaten from coffyns. English tradition credits making the first cherry pie to Queen Elizabeth I[1]!
