Believe it or not, we found pie recipes in our collection of government documents. Baking in the Home is a USDA Farmer’s Bulletin from 1920. It includes a basic pie crust recipe, since you wouldn’t have likely found ready-made back then. If you’re up for baking, you can try the recipes for apple, chocolate cream, sweet-potato, and squash pies.
