NATIONAL PIE DAY
Each year on December 1, dessert lovers across the United States observe National Pie Day.
This is the 2nd time in a year this national treasure has a day. The first and more popular designation falls on January 23.
While it might be the lesser of the two celebrated PIE days (there is also National Pi Day on March 14), it happens to fall smack dab in the middle of a major pie making season.
Take away ice cream as a dessert choice and most people are either cake people or pie people. Or to put it another way, most people have cake or pie with their ice cream! Combine bumper crops from our gardens and fruit trees with a booming holiday season full of baked goods, cool weather and rosy-cheeked children; it’s time to tie on those apron strings and get baking.
Of course, we aren’t limited to dessert. Savory pot pies provide comfort on a cold winters day and the satisfaction a family cook needs when caring for a family.
