4 Amazing Pies From 4 Different States

Have you ever heard the phrase ‘as American as apple pie? Well, it is a legitimate phrase. America is, for many, the home of the pie – sweet, savory, fruity, and everything else in between. Americans love a good pie, and many states even have their own ‘state pie’ which is commonly enjoyed locally. With that in mind, what are the major pies that are most commonly associated with specific parts of America?

Floridian Key Lime Pie

This is a hugely popular pie type in America, but especially in Florida. This baked treat is seen as a local dish and has been around since the middle of the 1800s. It has been made by using key limes, hence the name. It tastes extremely good, and the only thing we are not sure about is where it originally come from in Florida. Without a doubt, though, this is a beloved state-wide dish.

Whoopie Pie

This might not sound too appealing, but the people of New Hampshire love a Whoopie Pie. This pie has been around for years and is commonly found in other nearby states like Maine and Pennsylvania. The pie is a New Hampshire classic, though, and you should have no problem at all in finding a café or a diner that is serving this particular kind of pie. Some feel it is an acquired taste, but it is very nice once you get used to its unique flavoring!

Grape Pie

A grape pie is something that, once you try it, you will wonder why you waited so long. Grape pie is a common New York delicacy. The Finger Lakes is a common place to find the best grape pie, and you should try it out if you have never done so in the past. It’s like a really sweet and enjoyable pie, akin to an apple pie, but even sweeter and richer – definitely up there with the finest pies of the USA.

Connecticut Pumpkin Pie

The good people of Connecticut are who you have to thank for the development of the pumpkin pie. While many just eat this during the winter, it is a dish enjoyed across the state all year round. It has been around since the 1700s, to the point where the state itself delayed Thanksgiving due to a shortage in molasses that go into making this most wonderful dish. If you have found a more committed pie state, we would love to hear about it!
