National Cherry Pie Day
National Cherry Pie Day is celebrated on February 20 which just happens to coincide with President’s Day this year. It seems fitting to celebrate this national day on a day we honor George Washington. Although the cherry tree story is only a myth, George Washington was fond of cherries.
I’ve included a few recipes for making fresh cherry pie. Or you could do like I do and buy a Pillsbury pie crust and a couple cans of cherry pie filling. Cherry pie is my husband’s favorite and I make them frequently for him. If you are really short on time you could always stop and pick one up at your local store! If you enjoy cherry pie, I hope you get to celebrate it on February 20!
