Apple pie appears to have originated (or at least it's mentioned) in Europe as far back as 1381. It appears in a cookbook put together in 1390, and owned by master chefs of King Richard II, which was then presented to the Queen by Edward Lord Stafford; though the pies then were much different as the crust was not made to eat (basically inedible), and they did not use sugar as it was extremely costly.

Apple pie appears in America in the 18th century, and has been changed and made into the apple pie that we are all familiar to this day with the availability of sugar and butter due to becoming more affordable.
