Get Your Pie On

Fun fact - did you know it is National Pie Day today?  This is not to be confused with Pi day, that’s a whole different equation. National Pie Day was created for the sole reason of celebrating all things pie related.  You may enjoy eating pie, but do you know the history of pie? 

Pies have been around for ages. The first pies came about around 9500 BC by the Egyptians. The Romans published a pie made from rye-crusted goat cheese and honey. Aren’t you so glad we evolved to cherry, apple and other more appetizing flavors?

The first English settlers brought  pies to America and now it is considered the most traditional American dessert.
