May 13 is National Apple Pie Day....Celebrate

On May 13, millions across the country enjoy a piece of apple pie on National Apple Pie Day which is known as America's favorite dessert.

History:

  • The first apple pie recipe printed was in England in 1381.  The list of ingredients included in the recipe were: good apples, good spices, figs, raisins, pears, saffron and cofyn (pie crust).
  • Apple pie became a common food in eighteenth century United States homes but had been a favorite in Europe for hundreds of years.
  • In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, apple pie became a symbol of American prosperity and national pride.  
  • In 1902, A newspaper published an article that declared “No pie-eating people can be permanently vanquished.”

 

  • Writings tell us that during World War II, when journalists asked American soldiers why they were going to war, their reply was: “for Mom and apple pie”.

 

  • In 1970, advertisers used the patriotic connection with a commercial jingle” baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet”.

 

  • There is a community in New Mexico named, Pie Town, which was named in honor of the apple pie.

Simply put, I love apple pie! I don't even need a recognized day to eat it but now that I know it's officially apple pie day today it is now on my to-do list!

Interesting that Apple Pie Day  is not around with the fourth of July or Thanksgiving.

Hi Nicole Doty - Gilbert Real Estate Expert 

Any day is good for apple pie and hot apple pie is even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Forget the calories!

Hi Kathy Streib 

Yes, chocolate, peanut butter and lemon are my absolute favorites but apple pie is right up there. I like it served warm in a restaurant.

Hi Donna Foerster 

Absolutely a great reason to celebrate. I remember reading a common iconic phrase is "nothing is more American than apple pie".

Hi Patty Da Silva, Davie, Southwest Ranches Cooper City, Plantation, Weston, REALTOR 

I was so busy working yesterday and had back to back meetings so I totally forgot. Might just have a cool glass of iced tea tonight with some lemon slices.

Hi Michele Cadogan 

Yes, I would think the 4th of July would be a great holiday to celebrate with Apple Pie. Thanksgiving Day has Pumpin Pie and  I really like Cherry Pie at Christmas but Lemon is good anytime.

Hi Kristin Hamilton CA Realtor ,  I'm surprised Apple Pie Day was not in October,  but any day is a great day for some Apple Pie.

Hi Larry Johnston 

That would be the perfect time in October to celebrate during harvest time.
