Today the people at the Pie Council have chosen today â€” January 23 â€” as national pie day.
This first pies were developed by the Egyptians who wrapped honey inside oats, wheat, rye or barley. The Romans later realized that pies were the perfect travel food and took goat-cheese and honey pies along with them as they built their empire. The first fruit pie appeared around 1500 with Queen Elizabeth I, and thanks to the Pilgrims who brought their recipes to the New World, pies made with berries and pumpkin have become an American staple.
