I’ve often heard it said, that there’s nothing more American than apple pie…
In fact, the Pilgrims and early settlers brought their pie recipes with them to America, adapting to the ingredients and techniques available to them in the New World.
The very first American pies were based on berries and fruits pointed out to them by the Native North Americans.
As a kid growing up in Texas, I remember my mom having these great pie plates that had a different recipe for different pies printed on them. Now they are being sold as vintage on websites like Etsy! Anyhow, we had a set of three and the cheesecake was always my favorite… yum!
2) Do you like to eat your favorite pie à la mode (with a scoop of ice cream) or all by itself?
I can’t wait to hear about your favorites and find out how each of you and your families celebrate the holidays with classic American pies. Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving, everyone!
