Macro image of freshly sliced apple slices with rum soaked raisins saute in sweet butter, organic sugar, and organic cinnamon, to be canned for apple pie filling at holiday meals. soft selective focus on apple slices and raisins. The pie came to America with the first English settlers. The early colonists cooked their pies in long narrow pans calling them "coffins" like the crust in England. As in the Roman times, the early American pie crusts often were not eaten, but simply designed to hold the filling during baking. It was during the American Revolution that the term crust was used instead of coffyn.
Over the years, pie has evolved to become what it is today "the most traditional American dessert". Pie has become so much a part of American culture throughout the years, that we now commonly use the term "as American as apple pie."
