Pumpkin pie was first invented by the early American settlers by baking hollowed pie filled with milk and spices. The invention of pie crust is, then, very modern! The first recipe for pumpkin pie was by Francois Pierre la Varenne in a cookbook from 1651.

The pumpkin is native to North America. It was an early export to France; from there it was introduced to England, and the flesh of the 'pompion' was quickly accepted as pie filler. The Pilgrims brought the pumpkin pie back to England, but it subsequently died out in England itself.
