If you’ve read my Design Happens bio, you know that I’m slightly obsessed with pie. So, it’s no surprise that I couldn’t let the annual day devoted to pie pass by without a mention. Okay, March 14 is actually devoted to Pi (3.14159, the mathematical constant). But, the best way to pay tribute to the ratio of a circle to its diameter? A slice of pie, of course. (Learn more about the math side of this holiday here.) Here are 3.14 ways to enjoy a slice today.
1. Pi-Shaped Pie: This impressive tribute in the shape of the Greek letter for Pi is stuffed with cherry compote and topped with a lattice crust. Math has never looked so delicious!
2. Blueberry Pie: If you can’t commit to a custom-shaped pie, how about a classic blueberry model? Use fresh blueberries, and don’t skimp on the lemon zest!
3: Chocolate-Peanut Butter Pie: Chocolate lovers, take note: This candy bar-inspired pie is studded with caramel, peanuts, peanut butter and pretzels.Yes, PRETZELS.
And what’s the .14, you ask? An itsy, bitsy mini pie. Try these petite apple pies, complete with a tiny lattice crust. Or, you know, just snag another sliver of your full-sized version.
Happy Pi Day!
