National Pecan Pie Day History

National Pecan Pie Day encourages the consumption of the nutty pie. Pecan Pie is typically made using pecans, eggs, butter, sugar, and syrup. The earliest pecan pie recipe dates back to 1898, which was found in a church charity cookbook in St Louis. Pecan pie is a common dish served on Thanksgiving day. This is due to the harvesting of pecan nuts in September extending into November around the same time as Thanksgiving. Pecan pie was made popular by the syrup company known as Karo Syrup when they began printing the pecan pie recipe on the cans of pecan.
