National Pie Day 2015: Free Pie!
Did you know the origin of your grandmother’s apple pie dates back to ancient Egypt? Egyptian bakers in 1,300 B.C. folded bread dough around nuts, honey and fruits in the form of today’s rustic tarts or galettes. These fillings were often used in reeds rather than dough, simply to hold the pie together as it cooked. The Greeks and Romans carried on the pie-making tradition by wrapping meat in a flour and water paste, according to the American Pie Council. Fast forward a couple thousand years and those primitive pastries evolved into the pies we know today. In honor of National Pie Day on Friday, stop by one of the locations below for a slice of free pie.
CALIFORNIA: Buy four mini pies from the Petaluma Pie Company store on Friday and get the fifth one free.
