I love pies. I am especially a huge lover of cherry pie. I have been eating pies since I was a small child and love the fresh, smelling home-made pies. During special holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas, it is always a great holiday dessert treat after dinner. For whatever occasion it may be, pie is always a lovely dessert treat.
The creation of pies occurred during the ancient Egyptian period. During this period, stone tools were made by this ancient civilization along with the establishment of plants and animals, villages, and art crafts such as pottery and weaving. At this early time, pies were considered flat crusty cakes, by wrapping a sweet substance such as honey as a treat inside grounded oats, wheat, rye, or barley bread. These flat cakes later became sweet pastry or desserts. The Egyptians introduced pies to the Greeks, who then formed their own pie pastry technique into their culture. The Greeks were known to add meat to their pies by cooking the meat, and carefully sealing the juices inside, which provided as a staple food diet for men on long work journeys. This knowledge was then transferred to the Romans.
