A recent survey from shortening brand¬†Crisco, conducted by Toluna, shows that nearly all survey respondents (96 percent) eat pie during the holiday season, with 69 percent saying they typically eat pies the most at Thanksgiving and 44 percent indulge during Christmas. The survey also shows that pumpkin came out on top as the favorite holiday pie with 35 percent, followed by apple (27 percent) and pecan (16 percent). While 94 percent of those surveyed said they typically eat at least one slice of pie at Thanksgiving, 71 percent said they’re likely go back for a second helping. Those that bake pie from scratch say the hardest parts about baking pies include making the crust from scratch (52 percent), knowing exactly long to bake it (20 percent) and perfecting the filling (18 percent).
