National Pie Day

This Tuesday just got sweeter, it’s National Pie Day! This national day started in the 1970’s by a nuclear engineer, brewer, and teacher named Charlie Papazian from Boulder, Colorado. He declared his own birthday, January 23, to be National Pie Day.

The following are the top 10 favorite types of pie in the U.S.:

  1. Cream Pie
  2. Pumpkin Pie
  3. Lemon Meringue Pie
  4. Apple Pie
  5. Cherry Pie
  6. Pecan Pie
  7. Key Lime Pie
  8. Peach Cobbler
  9. Sweet Potato Pie
  10. Blueberry Pie.

My favorite type of pie is my mom’s homemade Peanut Butter Pie. It’s a unique pie that is made in the freezer and served cold!

Be on the lookout at restaurants near you to see if they are having any pie specials today. Treat yourself to something sweet!
