To apprecipate the great taste of homemade peach pie. If you’ve never had it before, give it a try. Let today be the day you bake your very first peach pie. Try putting cold peach ice cream on top and let it melt on a slice of hot peach pie.
Peach pie is the quintessential American dessert in the Southern states. In countless surveys it has been chosen as the favorite dessert in the South. It has also been recognized as a favorite dessert in Canada for hundred of years as well.

Peach pie was invented sometime around the 14th century in Europe. Though it is unknown who actually created the first peach pie, the first printed peach pie recipe was by Geoffrey Chaucer in 1381 in England. The ingredients in this recipe included peaches, spices, figs, raisins, pears, saffron, and cofyn, a casing of pastry.

Dutch peach pie recipes date back to the late 15th century. These recipes were similar to the English recipes but also included a scoop of ice cream placed on top of the pie before it was served. This tradition—peach pie a la mode—was brought to America where most people enjoy their peach pie topped with ice cream.

During the 19th century, many homes in the state of Georgia served peach pie and other types of fruit pies for breakfast because it was considered a good, hearty meal to begin a hard day of work. To celebrate National Peach Pie Day, bake a delicious pie or pick one up at your local bakery to share with your family!
