People all over the world love pie. I’ve read that pie dates back to ancient Egypt and we’ve been making pies ever since. They were often filled with fruit, nuts, and meat. The crust was made using some type of flour from wheat, rye, or oats and was then cooked in lard or beef fat. Nowadays, most folks have replaced beef fat with shortening.
