When it comes to pies, many people have traditions. Jewell Smith, a student here at Snow College shared what her family does. “My family makes like 30 pies every year about 10 different kinds. We invite friends and family over to eat them. We all joke around have fun.”
Do families normally have a lot of left over pies? One thing many people enjoy doing with left over pies is to have a slice of pie for breakfast. Also many believe that there is nothing better than to come home from a long day at work or school, sit at the kitchen counter and have a slice of pie.
Some students may never have any leftover pies, this is the case for Jenica Chishom a student at Snow College said, “My family and I eat pies after dinner but we normally save them until way later and they become a midnight snack. Even though we make a ton of pies we hardly ever have any left overs.”
The famous pumpkin pie that is almost always present at a Thanksgiving dinner hasn’t always been in the form of a pie. The way that Early American settlers of Plimoth Plantation, the first permanent European settlement in southern New England, might have made pumpkin pies is by making stewed pumpkins or by filling a hollowed out shell with milk, honey and spices, and then baking it in hot ashes. This is what developed into pumpkin pie about 50 years after the first Thanksgiving in America.
