apple-pieNational Pie Day was created simply to celebrate the pie.  It is a day for all to bake or cook their favorite pies.  Even more importantly, it is a day set aside for all to enjoy eating pies!

The first pies appeared around 9500 BC in the Egyptian Neolithic period or New Stone Age.

Fun Tidbit – Pie throwing:
Cream filled or topped pies are favorite props for humor.  Throwing a pie in a person’s face has been a staple of film comedy since Ben Turpin received one in Mr. Flip in 1909.

Go out for pie or try one of these recipes:

Caramel Drizzle Macchiato Pie
Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
Perfect Pumpkin Pie
Blueberry Pie

National Pie Day was created by the American Pie Council.  The American Pie Celebration began in 1986 to commemorate Crisco’s 75th anniversary of “serving foods to families everywhere”.

There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day with National Day Calendar!
