"That's as American as baseball and apple pie," is a common saying. Interestingly, however, this delicious desert didn't originate in America - and neither did apples.

We'll look at the history of this desert and learn how to draw an apple pie.

What is apple pie? Typically, it has two crusts, one on top and one on the bottom, with a baked apple filling in between. The top crust may be decoratively woven like a basket.

The apples are flavored with spices like cinnamon, and the pie may be served with ice cream or whipped cream. In England, it is eaten with Wensleydale cheese.

The oldest known recipe for apple pie dates back to the 1300s, to the time of the famous poet Chaucer in England.

When English colonists set out for the Americas, they brought with them both apple trees (originally native to Asia) and this classic recipe. Today, it remains a traditional American comfort food.

8. Draw a double-pointed shape on top of the pie using two curved lines, and draw another line down its middle. This represents the hole cut in the crust to allow the pie to vent or let off steam as it bakes. Then, draw a few pieces of pie filling that have fallen from the slice. Enclose irregular shapes and contour them with curved lines.
