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."
The popular saying we're familar with today is found just two years later in 1887. It's written in various newspapers from that year, one of them being a newspaper from Rhode Island called Newport Mercury, and it says:
"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?"
So the phrase dates back at least to the late 19th century. (found on know your phrase.com)
Not, mind you, that actually making an apple pie is so easy. It is however a lot of fun; especially if you visit the farm and pick your own apples with children showing them the process of making an apple pie with farm fresh apples from scratch. We will have apples ready for u pick around the middle of September. See you soon! We are hoping that our pumpkins will be ready the last week of September if you want to tackle a pumpkin pie from scratch too. Enjoy your week; here's hoping that your entire week is as easy as EATING an apple pie!
