Here's the Most Popular Pie in Each State: Do You Agree?


Whether you prefer key lime, apple, or chocolate cream, we can all agree that pie is one of America's favorite things. Any self-respecting Thanksgiving dessert table should have at least three pies, and no 4th of July should go by without a few slices of fruit pie. Matador Network worked to compile the most popular pie in each state, based on pie bakers and pie lovers from across the country.

Some states' favorite pie is affected by the climate, while others depend on the foods and products grown there. For example, Alabama is one of the biggest producers of citrus, and a refreshing, a slice lemony pie with a scoop of ice cream is the perfect way to beat the heat of an Alabama summer.

The south is known for their comfort foods, and the pie recipes that come out of this region are no exception. Americans who grow up in the south likely have a penchant for buttermilk pies, cream pies, and meringue pies. Whether you prefer a graham cracker pie crust or a classic pastry crust is up to you.
