When I was a kid it was a tradition to have a cherry pie on Washington’s birthday – I guess because of the infamous chopping down the cherry tree story. But I have not heard much about the tradition in recent years, but now I have the perfect excuse to bring it back – the All American Cherry Pie I found from the fine folks at he Centerville Pie Company.

About the All American Cherry Pie from the Centerville Pie Company:

“The All American cherry pie! The wonderfully tart cherry filling is piled high into our well known sweet, flaky crust, topped with traditional lattice crust. Top with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream or enjoy a slice all on its’ own!”

By the way – today, February 22 is the actual birthday of Mr. Washington, which was celebrated for 150 years before being lumped into “Presidents’ Day” – which combined his birthday with one Abraham Lincoln (Feb. 12) to honor both men and ultimately all presidents.
