Holiday Desserts: Fresh-Baked Pies
“There’s a happy feeling nothing in the world can buy
When they pass around the coffee and the pumpkin pie…”
Pie: the Holiday Staple
When you think of holiday desserts, what is the first dessert that springs to mind? That’s right: pie. While pumpkin pie has been memorialized in song by Johnny Mathis, other types of pie are equally popular during the holiday season. Pecan pie and buttermilk pie are favorites in the southern states, with apple pie and lemon pie enjoying favor in the northern part of the nation.
The time-honored tradition of having a delicious pie (or five) at a holiday feast can be traced back to the 16th century. These days, pie is a staple at every Thanksgiving and Christmas feast. Chocolate pie, coconut cream pie, banana pie, key lime pie…most of us can name a favorite, and while we expect to see pie during the holidays, Americans are known to enjoy pie pretty much any time of the year.
