Celebrate National Pie Day in Elkridge

Elkridge residents are no strangers to good, homemade pie.

Although the pie is not an American invention, it has certainly become an American tradition, thus the term, "as American as apple pie."

Today, Jan. 23, has been deemed National Pie Day by the American Pie Council

According to the American Pie Council, pie came to America with the first English settlers. The early colonists cooked their pies in long narrow pans calling them "coffins." As in the Roman times, the early American pie crusts often were not eaten, but simply designed to hold the filling during baking. It was during the American Revolution that the term "crust" was used instead of "coffin."

My favorite pies are my own. The ones I like the best are Derby Pie, Caramel Apple Pie and Fresh Raspberry pie. I would like to know where to buy a good one though.

Share a recipe (if it's not secret :) I'd love to try to make a Caramel Apple Pie for my husband and son!
