Few things warm the heart as well as your favorite pie and a cup of coffee. With National Pie Day quickly approaching on Jan. 23, 2024, we thought sharing some tips for celebrating this delicious holiday with the ultimate cup of coffee would be appropriate. Let’s dive in and explore more about this fun-filled occasion and how to make it one to remember.
Delicious History of Pie
Did you know pie dates back to 9500 B.C. in ancient Egypt? It was also mentioned in the works of the first Greek writer, Homer. Today, pie is a staple dessert enjoyed worldwide with various flavors and crusts. No matter how you slice it, people have been enjoying this delectable dessert for thousands of years. While National Pie Day reminds us of how amazing this special treat is, people enjoy it for birthdays, holidays, or just to indulge in something delicious.
There’s no wrong way to celebrate National Pie Day on Jan. 23, but here are some quick ideas for your friends and family.
- Have a “pie-luck” where everyone can bring a different pie to share and enjoy together.
- Host a pie-making competition and invite your friends and family to bake their best pies and everyone gets a slice of each (win!). The winner gets bragging rights until you meet again in 2025.
- Visit your local bakery or cafe. Support small businesses and treat yourself to a slice of their delicious pies.
Celebrating National Pie Day wouldn’t seem appropriate without sharing some tips on how to create the perfect dessert. Don’t underestimate the importance of using quality ingredients, from the dough to the filling. Experiment with different flavor combinations, keep your ingredients cold, and be OK with making the occasional mistake. It’s all part of the fun!
