Cherry pie is made with tart rather than sweet cherries.
Cherry pie is associated with Europe, North America and is mentioned in the lyrics of American folk songs such as Billy Boy. Due to the cherry harvest in midsummer coinciding with Canada Day on July 1 and America's Independence Day on July 4, cherry pie is often served on these holidays. It is also associated with the celebration of Washington's Birthday because of the legend of young Washington’s honesty regarding the felling of a cherry tree.
Cherry pie is often eaten with whipped cream or ice cream. A common preparation tradition i is to decorate the crust with ornate pastry patterns as is ours with a lattice pastry top.
