Celebrated on December 1st
The Romans must have spread the word about pies around Europe as the Oxford English Dictionary notes that the word pie was a popular word in the 14th century. The first pie recipe was published by the Romans and was for a rye-crusted goat cheese and honey pie.
The term "as American as apple pie" traces back to 14th century England. The Pilgrims brought their pie-making skills, along with the apple seeds to America. As the popularity of apple pie spread throughout the nation, the phrase grew to symbolize American prosperity. Before pie was America's favorite dessert, fruit pies were commonly eaten as part of breakfast in the 19th century.
The 5 most popular pies are apple, pumpkin, pecan, banana cream and cherry pie
