Let’s all celebrate this treat’s national holiday with some crazy cool fun facts!
- The holes in your pies crust are not just for decoration! It actually helps the pie cook better. It allows the steam to escape while cooking. This prevents the crust from getting soggy.
- The most recommended way to make apple pie is to include a variety of apples. Precisely a mix of sweet red apples and tart green apples!
- Pies are not always filled with sweet fruits! In medieval times the most popular type of pie was known as ‘Shepard’s Pie,’ which is a meat-filled treat. These types of pies are still made today!
