14 Pies for Pi(e) Day

March 14, 2014

You don't have to be good at math to celebrate Pi Day. Pi is an irrational number, afterall, which in turn gives us the right to be irrational -- to do things like eat as much pie as we want and pretend it has something to do with a number. So, we will.

Some of us have memorized Pi to its 100th decimal point; some of us simply remember that Pi is a funny symbol we learned in middle school; some of us just love pie (dare we say -- infinitely?). Ultimately, it doesn't matter if you're a mathlete or an advanced TI-89 calculator artist -- today, there's a slice of Pi for everyone. In that spirit, here are 14 recipes to fill our bellies and our minds with Pi(e).

I made these three for Pi Day: Maple-Bacon Cream Pie, Coconut Cream with Mile High meringue, and Apple Sour Cream Pie with Crumb Topping. :)
