It's already been established that I love pie, so here are some fun pie facts before my next recipe:
  1. Pies have (apparently) been around since the time of the ancient Egyptians.
  2. Traditionally, pies were made predominately of meat. 
  3. Queen Elizabeth I (apparently) loved cherry pies.
  4. Pumpkin pie made it's appearance at the second Thanksgiving.
  5. In the 1800s fruit pies were actually a popular BREAKFAST.
You're welcome. So, as a thank you for bearing with my pie trivia, below is the recipe for my Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie - enjoy!
