Happy Great American Pie Day

Oh yes Americans have long had a love affair for pies. You could probably debate what pie is the #1 great American pie: Is it apple, cherry, pumpkin, peach, chocolate, lemon or pecan?
We decided to go with apple. Why did we go with apple?
Well as the famous saying goes......
"It's as American as baseball and Apple Pie."

Americans celebrate National Pie Day on January 23.  It's traditional to share the warmth of the ultimate 'comfort food' by giving a pie to a friend or neighbor. The American Pie Council suggests. "Your generosity will be long remembered."

The APC  is dedicated to preserving America's love affair with pies. Its website says the APC  is "designed to raise awareness, enjoyment and consumption of pies. Members exchange recipes... and participate in American Pie Council events." There's even an official newsletter called Pie Times, and members and friends are urged "to compete with other pie lovers in the annual National Pie Championships and win your claim to the designation of one of the best pie makers in the nation."
