Pie Day (not to be confused with Pi Day on March 14th) celebrates pies in their many shapes and forms. The earliest evidence of pies have been discovered in Egyptian tombs as far back as 1300 BC, and recipes for pies have been found that date back even further. Even back in those times pies came in both sweet and savory form. Savory pies were filled with meat, while sweet pies probably contained honey. These pies were often baked as a way to preserve food, especially for those who had to travel long distances. Today pies are still found in many cultures around the world, and with good reason. You can put almost anything in a pie crust and it’s pretty much guaranteed to be delicious. The American Pie Council suggests that you celebrate this day by giving pies to hometown heroes and first responders. Share the love with the people who work hard to keep you safe and happy every day.
