National Lemon Cream Pie Day

National Lemon Crea is celebrated in the USA on November 29th. We hope that the sweet tooth has already gathered to celebrate the existence of a wonderful sunny treat! It appeared a very long time ago and has come down to our days. And we’re definitely not going to forget about the pie!

History

Scholars suggest that lemon pie first appeared in Italy in the mid-1500s. Very soon they learned about the recipe in France. But filling with cream or meringue became popular in the 19th century. There have been many experiments over the centuries – in fact, they continue to this day!

Even though November is pumpkin pie time, National Day brings us back to the sweet summer to enjoy it at least on our plate. The smell of the pie can strike from the first second! Unfortunately, the treat will not suit everyone: it is not recommended for people with allergies to citrus, people with kidney disease. The rest can enjoy the dessert and decorate the holiday table with it.
