We couldn't think of a more quintessential American dessert than pie. 

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.  We decided to cliff-note the American Pie history for you below to explain why we chose 3 delectable American Pies as our 4th of July macaron flavors! 

  • RED Cherry Pie — cherry shell with vanilla bean buttercream + cherry center
  • WHITE Apple Pie — apple shell with apple pie spiced buttercream + apple butter center
  • BLUE Blueberry Pie — blueberry shell with blueberry bourbon pecan buttercream
1620 – The Pilgrims brought their favorite family pie recipes with them to America.  The colonist and their pies adapted simultaneously to the ingredients and techniques available to them in the New World.  At first, they baked pie with berries and fruits pointed out to them by the Native Americans.
1700s – Pioneer women often served pies with every meal, thus firmly cementing this pastry into a unique form of American culture.  With food at the heart of gatherings and celebrations, pie quickly moved to the forefront of contests at county fairs, picnics, and other social events.

We the Birds

Sisters, Sarah + Natalie Knowlton, are the founders of WE THE BIRDS — a lifestyle brand and luxury French macaron bakery. We grew up all over the world, moving over 17 times and living in many countries including: Singapore, Australia, Venezuela, Cambodia, Thailand, France and of course, the US of A.  Our personal style and global perspective is a reflection of our transient upbringing. 

Now based in Dallas, TX, we established WE THE BIRDS through a shared love of fashion, design, travel and French macarons. What started as a creative outlet for two sisters, has blossomed into a multi-faceted business. Sarah’s professional background (with industry experience in fashion, design, & photography) combined with Natalie’s culinary prowess and professional business experience sets us apart from our competitors and makes us a uniquely dynamic duo.
