More Than 3.14 Pie Recipes for Pi Day

By • March 14, 2013 • 2 Comments

Food nerds and math nerds unite: it's pi(e) day! Which means we'll be rolling out dough while rattling off as many digits behind 3.14 as we can muster.

Conveniently, pi is the ratio between a circle's diameter and its circumference, and all of the pie recipes we're sharing today bake up in a perfect circle. This might all be a little overwhelming: infinite digits and infinite pie possibilities? Don't worry -- we've cut down your edible options to nine, from sweet pies to savory tarts.

Just like the number, our love for pie has always been a little irrational.

I stop with the first "9" because that's where the ratio no longer sounds lyrical. ;o)
