This blogger is thoroughly exhausted from celebrating National Pi(e) day so we will have ONE MORE DAY of the Pie Round-UP! You can never have too many slices of pie.
If you are out of the loop…yesterday was National Pi Day!
The date was 3-14! Get it? 3.14. This is the only math lesson EVER on S&C (I’m too cool to spell out my whole name…kinda like J.Lo) Pi, Greek letter Pi (which I haven’t figured out how to type on my keyboard) is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi Day is celebrated by math enthusiasts around the world on March 14th. Pi = 3.1415926535…Pretty sweet, right? So here is my pie round up because that’s what any self respecting Pi or Pie enthusiast would do on a mathematically amazing day like today. Enjoy!
First and foremost, I must start with Jeanne’s (Simple Math Bakery) Blood Orange Curd Pie in the shape of Pi. Was she rockin’ the Pi day or what?
How about S&C’s own Hawaiian Haupia Pie which starts with a macadamia shortbread crust, then has a layer of coconut Haupia filling, then a layer of chocolate Haupia and is topped with Fresh Whipped Cream and coconut curls?
How about this doozy, Strawberry Rhubarb Pie from Rufus Food and Spirits Guide which is oozing with strawberry goodness and is even Lattice Topped (Seriously Greg, I am not buying that YOU made it. Katherine? Are you really responsible for this gem?).
Or what about making a traditional and gorgeous Apple Pie from Misadventures in Cooking?
Finally, I would be remiss if I did not direct you to one of my very first posts which is a recipe from Gale Gand and is titled, “Bake Sale Lemon Meringe Pie“.
Maybe now you’ll decide to bake up a beautiful pie when you get home today. Send me the photo…I’ll post it tomorrow with the “I made pie on Pi Day” if you do! Seriously. I am just that nice. Take care and Happy Pi Day!
