National Pie Day is celebrated every year on January 23. Created by the American Pie Council in 1986, National Pie Day is a special day that is set aside to bake and cook all of your favorite pies. On this day, you are also encouraged to bake a few new pie recipes. And most importantly, it’s a day to eat pies!
A great way to celebrate National Pie Day is to bake some pies and give them away to friends, neighbors, and relatives. An even better way to celebrate National Pie Day is to visit your favorite bakery and enjoy a slice of your favorite pie. And, there are many bakeries to choose from in Genesee County.
