WFMY NEWS 2 -- Pumpkin, apple, blueberry, pecan, or something else...which pie is your favorite?

Wednesday is the day to celebrate your favorite pie because Jan. 23 is National Pie Day.

According to the American Pie Council, the first pies were made by early Romans who learned about it through the Greeks.

"The first pie recipe was published by the Romans and was for a rye-crusted goat cheese and honey pie," The American Pie Council reports on its website. "The early pies were predominately meat pies."

Fruit pies didn't come along until the 1500s. Pie came to American with the first English settlers.
