National Cherry Pie Day History

Papa C Pies has a mouthwatering cherry pie to enjoy for the holiday or any other day of the year. Their cherry pie is filled with tart cherries, a dash of cinnamon, and almond extract to help bring out the delectable flavor.

History of Cherry Pie

The cherry pie has been around for centuries, with the first appearance believed to have been presented to Queen Elizabeth I in the 1500s. 

Pie was brought to the United States with the early settlers along with the cherry tree. Initially, the crust was just used as a way to hold the pie during the baking process or to store the filling and was not eaten. Researchers believe it wasn’t until the American Revolution between 1775 and 1783 that people began eating the casing and it was referred to as crust.

The holiday is celebrated right around President’s Day (this year they fall on the same day), and it is believed that the day was chosen because of the relation to George Washington and his cherry trees.
