History of Pumpkin Pie
There have been many different versions of a pumpkin pie throughout history. One of the first times it was written down was in 1651. A famous French chef, François Pierre, featured a recipe for “Tourte of Pumpkin” in one of his cookbooks.
Versions of the pumpkin pie started showing up in English cookbooks in 1670 and have evolved from there. It is believed that the pilgrims may have made a version of pumpkin pie with the pumpkins that the Native Americans gave them, which is why pumpkin pie is very popular around Thanksgiving.
Pumpkin Pie at Christmas
Pumpkin pies are the most popular Christmas dessert, followed by Eggnog, and are the favorite holiday treat in Tennessee.
Pumpkin pie is mentioned in many famous holiday songs, most notably in “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” with the line “Later we’ll have some pumpkin pie and we’ll do some caroling.” That sounds like the perfect way to celebrate National Pumpkin Pie day and get into the Christmas spirit!
