National Apple Pie Day, America’s favorite dessert, is observed annually on May 13th.The first apple pie recipe printed was in England in 1381. The list of ingredients included good apples, good spices, figs, raisins, pears, saffron, and cofyn (a type of pastry crust). There are many different styles of apple pie, including crumb-topped varieties. And each baker has his or her preference in the type of apples that constitute the best texture and flavor for the pie.
While the apple pie existed well before the Pilgrims landed on the eastern shores of what is now the United States, Americans wax poetic about the how American apple pie is. The phrase “as American as apple pie” has been around for more than 100 years. Apple pie promotions can feature American flags and other patriotic imagery, available in the Creative Library of MetroCreativeConnection.com. Don't forget that apple pie is often a diner classic, making it the ideal catalyst for promoting area eateries.
