If you Google fact check us, you will find the origin of pie traces back to 6000 B.C in ancient Egypt -- but for all intensive purposes, we hope that pie makes you think of America's first colonists, pioneer women, Thanksgiving feasts, and the delicious dessert you used to eat at your grandparents' house.
