Enjoy Making Homemade Pies

Pies and tarts continue to be popular desserts in our day. And with our modern ovens, finer flours, refined sugars, and a greater variety of fruits, they now taste better than ever. In fact, they're absolutely delicious! Select one of these old fashioned recipes and make a delicious dessert for your family today.

The History of Pie

Pie making likely began around 200 B.C. with the Greeks who baked them sometimes in a thick, bread-like crust. After the Romans conquered Greece, they eventually introduced the Greek recipe for pie to Roman citizens and to much of the European continent.

Early pies were mostly made with a meat filling, however, and it was not until after the Crusaders returned to Europe in the 12th century with a taste for Arab confections that honey, sugar, and fruits began to be incorporated.

The first all-fruit pies became popularized in England during the 1500s, and it's known that Queen Elizabeth I grew very fond of them. She also loved all manner of tarts highly sweetened with sugar. Numerous recipes were developed by chefs employed by the nobility, and fruit filled pastries became a pleasurable treat.

About the Homemade Pie Recipes

All the world loves pie. Many of us consider it to be one of the most traditional and best-tasting desserts, and we can all name our favorite kind. As for me, I simply love them all. I've never yet tasted a pie I didn't like!

Our old farm kitchen never seemed more homey or inviting than when there were several freshly baked pies cooling on the window sill with their sweet, enticing fragrances filling the room. Grandma's old fashioned recipes will allow you to experience those wonderful nostalgic times right in your own kitchen.

These are some of the best homemade pie recipes ever published. Generations of cooks have treasured them, and I know that you will love them too. There's also some easy pie crust recipes to go with them. A flaky homemade crust makes your pie different from store-bought and extra special.
