For Sunday, February 20th, 2011
On this winter day, people go out at noon, wave their hands over their heads and chant Hoodie-Hoo.
It is a day to chase away winter and bring in spring. After all, everyone in the northern hemisphere are sick and tired of winter at this point and a little crazy being cooped up inside all winter and not seeing the sun.
It's Cherry Pie Day. Cherry pie is America's second most popular pie, behind only apple pie in popularity. However, in the month of February, it's Number 1.
As a young boy, George Washington made the Cherry tree popular, with his famous quote I can not tell a lie, I chopped down the Cherry tree. We celebrate George Washington's Birthday and President's Day in February. Appropriately, its traditional to bake cherry pies in honor of the occasion.
Being the hot pie of the moth, it is only fitting that Cherry Pie Day falls in February. On Cherry Pie Day, celebrate today with a piece of pie.
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease pie plate, 10 x 1 1/2 inches. Beat all ingredients except pie filling and Streusel until smooth, 15 seconds in blender on high or 1 minute with hand beater. Pour into plate. Spoon pie filling evenly over top. Top with Streusel. Bake until Streusel is brown, about 10 minutes longer. Cool refrigerate any remaining pie.
