pie-eyed

Pie is good any time of year, but it’s a necessity during the holidays.

Pie is one of those rare things that everyone likes. There’s more than enough variety to suit every taste: If you don’t like apple, there’s cherry or pumpkin. If you like things on the tart side, there’s lemon meringue and Key lime. If you don’t consider it a dessert unless there’s chocolate, there’s chocolate silk or Hershey bar pie. And
if you don’t have a sweet tooth at all, then just ask the folks over in Natchitoches to whip you up one of their famous savory meat pies.

According to the American Pie Council, the first pie recipe was published by the Romans for a “rye-crusted goat cheese and honey pie,” which actually sounds like something that might be in vogue these days.

Pie came to America with the Pilgrims, but like almost everything we eat on Thanksgiving, it was not actually at the first Thanksgiving feast. Historians speculate that the first Thanksgiving menu included partridge, venison and radishes, among other foods, but no mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce or pie. I’m all for historical accuracy, but if I’m choosing between historically accurate radishes and historically inaccurate pie, historical accuracy is going out the window.

So as the weather cools and the holidays come and go, hunker down with a slice of pie in whatever flavor you like, even goat cheese and honey.
