Lately I've Been Thinking...

As easy as making an apple pie.....look what I found


This phrase is believed to come from the pleasantness and ease involved when eating a delicious pie. Basically, something is as easy as eating a pie. Evidently, during the 19th century, the word 'pie' was used to describe someone as being delightful or to depict something as being easy. Consider the examples below:

In the year 1885, the word 'pie' was used as a nice remark by Mark Twain in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, where it reads:
"You're always as polite as pie to them."

"You see veuever I goes I takes away mit me a silverspoon or a knife or somethings, an' I gets two
or three dollars for them. It's easy as pie. Vy don't you try it?"
