About National Pumpkin Pie Day
Although pumpkin pie is a popular dessert in North America, it has a history that is much more complex than one might suspect.
A pie made using pumpkins was actually a recipe of the Native American tribes who lived in what is now the United States, but the modern recipe that we are familiar with was likely developed in New England.
The first written record of pumpkin pie was in a 1691 book by the American, Amelia Simmons. The book was titled, "American Cookery" and was the first cookbook written by an American.
