It seems only right that we celebrate the cherry pie so close to Presidents Day as we all know that there is a story of President George Washington and the cherry tree. It is also written that cherry pie was not only the favorite pie of George Washington but it was also the favorite of Queen Elizabeth I.

According to the American Pie Council, pie came to America with the first English settlers. The early colonists cooked their pies in long narrow pans calling them "coffins" like the crust in England. As in the Roman times, the early American pie crusts often were not eaten, but simply designed to hold the filling during baking. It was during the American Revolution that the term crust was used instead of "coffyn".

In the United States, cherry pie is often referred to as a "great American dish". Recipe books have many different versions of recipes for cherry pie. Try one of the following "tried and true" cherry pie recipes:
