Why pie, and not cake, cookies, or other sweets for our Thanksgiving meal? It certainly wasn't part of any feast with the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag tribe of Native Americans -- they wouldn't have had the butter and flour needed for the crust.

Despite the fact that pumpkin pie has become one of America's favorite Thanksgiving desserts, it was actually not present at the original feast of 1621. In fact, according to, the pilgrims wouldn't have even had butter or flour for making a pie crust, let alone an oven for baking. Some people have speculated that they might have hollowed out pumpkins and filled them with milk, spices, and honey, making a custard, but nothing has ever been proven.

Th Washington Post credits popular magazine editor, Sarah Josepha Hale, as having started the pumpkin pie tradition when she read about the original 1621 feast and published recipes for turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie in an attempt to make a model for an annual holiday in the middle of the nineteenth century. These recipes had nothing to do with the colonists, and it was only because of Sarah Josepha Hale's persistence that they became a staple in today's Thanksgiving menu.
