There's great satisfaction in baking your own pies. Rolling the
dough for a pie, heaping in the fillings and smelling the crust
baking to a golden brown. Out of various ingredients you can
create many marvels. Flaky crust filled with syrupy fruit, brimming
with tart, shimmery lemon or mysterious dark chocolate. Spicy meat
mixtures hide beneath crisp pastry jackets. It's a special magic!
The history of pies is one that certainly
interesting and varied. For example, the pies that Romans
ate at elaborate banquets were used as showpieces at the dinner.
Meat and Fish Pies became fairly popular in 14th century England
and the fruit pies, often called tarts, became popular in the 16th
century. Once the British settlers came to America the tradition
of pie making continued, but since new ingredients were found in
the Americas such pies as pumpkin and cranberry pies.
