When : January 23rd each year
Created by the American Pie Council, National Pie Day is dedicated to the celebration of pie. As part of our American heritage, this day is a perfect opportunity to pass on the love and enjoyment of pie eating and pie making to future generations.
National Pie Day is a special day that is set aside to bake and cook all of your favorite pies. On this day, you are also encouraged to bake a few new pie recipes. And most importantly, it’s a day to eat pies!
A great way to celebrate National Pie Day is to bake some pies and give them away to friends, neighbors, and relatives. You never know, you may be starting a tradition of pie giving between your friends and family.
And now, without further ado, the Pie Song from Michael.
Pie, pie, me oh my,
Nothing tastes better, wet, salty and dry.
Apple and pumpkin and mince and black bottom,
I’ll come to your place every day if you’ve got ’em.
Pie, me oh my, I love piiiiieeeeeee
And the scene from Michael regarding pie.
Do we have pie?
You’re in the pie capital of America.
Well, we want….
We want pie. What have you got?
I got them memorized, okay? Ready?
We got apple, of course…
…banana cream, coconut cream, sour cream raisin.
Definitely. Chocolate cream…
…strawberry rhubard pie and…
…and lemon meringue.
We want two slices of everything.
And vanilla ice cream on the side.

Saffron pear pie/Saffron pear cobbler, or what the heck to do when your pear tree makes too many pears.
4-5 Large Anjou pears, peeled and sliced.
1C French Vanilla Sugar
1/8 tsp Saffron
1/8 tsp grated nutmeg
Mint leaves for garnish(optional)
One tub non-dairy whipped topping(for cobbler-type)
Place ingredients into medium saucepan, and heat until pears are soft.
Drain for standard pie, place in pie shell, bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until golden. Serve warm with a dollop of whipped topping and mint leaves, if desired.
Add 2 tbsp flour and a pat of butter to mixture and fill graham cracker crust for cobbler type, and sprinkle top with crumble mixture(brown sugar, graham cracker crumbles and butter). Bake at 375 degrees for ten minutes, or until golden. Serve warm with dollop of whipped topping and mint leaves, if desired.
French Vanilla Sugar(made by filling a mason jar with sugar, and one or two empty vanilla bean pods, shake once a day for a week, then just before you use it–if you don’t run out first)
The pears are also nice canned, and served warmed over pancakes.
I can’t believe I missed National Pie Day. I’d adding it to my calendar. MMMM….PIE!!! I won pie baking contest in 9th grade. I made an Apple Chocolate Chip pie. It was yummy! I have to try and find it.
Do you have meat pies in the USA? That’s something I didn’t take note of when I was over there.
We have Pot Pies which are similar yet not the same.
Pecan pie. Must have! I found a chocolate pecan pie in Salado, Texas at The Stagecoach Inn. Unfortunately, that just adulterated two wonderful types of pies. It should have been delicious, but…it disappointed. You must remind us a week in advance of these things, so we can properly celebrate!!
Here is a wikipedia link about meat pies in Australia
In my opinion, Pie Day (or PI Day) is March 3, or 3.14. But really, I love pie so much, I say, “pie day, every day!”
