A food called pie can be traced back to 1303 and was very popular by 1362.
The first pies were made of meat and fish.
The early settlers were making pies as soon as they arrived in America.
Those historical pies were made with single pie and double pie crusts, the same way they are made today.
There was good reasons why those first colonist were making lots of pies in those hard and primitive conditions other than being a favorite food.
A piecrust used less flour than bread and did not require anything as complicated as a brick oven for baking.
Most important though, was that those pies could stretch those settlers provisions to feeding a few more hungry souls.
Another plus, a pie crust did not use up as much flour as did bread making.
