National Pecan Pie Day - July 12
Saturday, July 12th
12:00 AM
Whole Foods Market San Mateo Bakery,

National Pecan Pie Day is annually celebrated on July 12.

The delicious pecan pie is made primarily with corn syrup, pecan nuts, salt and vanilla flavoring with some variations including sugar syrup and molasses or maple syrup. Chocolate and bourbon whiskey may also be added to the pie recipe and is a popular addition in some areas. Pecan pie is often served with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Pecan pie is considered a specialty of Southern U.S. cuisine.

The attempts that have been made to trace this dish’s origin have not found any recipes dated earlier than 1897, even though there are claims made of the pie existing in the early 1800′s in Louisiana. Well known cookbooks such as Fannie Farmer and The Joy of Cooking did not include this desert until 1940.

Pecan pie was significantly popularized by the makers of Karo syrup. Their company has claimed that the pie was a “discovery”, in the 1930′s, by a corporate sales executive’s wife, as a “new use for corn syrup”.
