As far back as 1300B.C., pies were made with meat and fish fillings by Egyptians and Greeks. Fruit pies with apples and pears were probably first cooked in the 1500s in England. When the pilgrims came to America (1600s), there were no apples, so they made berry pies. On the frontier, women put pecans, rhubarb, peaches, and huckleberries in their pie crust. Down south, nutritious sweet potatoes, that were brought over from Africa on slave ships, made their way into pies. And by the 20th Century, pie was the symbol of American plenty and national pride.
