Food Facts on Apple Pie

  • An apple pie is a fruit pie or tart in which the principal filling ingredient is an apple.
  • It is sometimes served with whipped cream or ice cream on top, or alongside cheddar cheese
  • Pastry is generally used top-and-bottom, making it a double-crust pie, the upper crust of which may be a circular shaped crust or a pastry lattice woven of strips.
  • The unincorporated community of Pie Town, New Mexico is named in honor of the apple pie.
  • Apple pie in the 14th century was very different from today’s pie, as it didn’t contain sugar and the pastry (coffins) generally not meant to be eaten.
