It’s March 14th! That means math rules the day and we get to celebrate by eating pie! Yes, the third month, the fourteenth day is very special around here. For it is the glorious day we celebrate the tool that helps us calculate all circular things. 3.14 = pi. March 14th = pie. Here are some of my favorites to make for this special day.
First of all, you must have a dinner pie. Like this Chicken Pot Pie. It’s one of my children’s absolute favorite meals. Full of homey vegetables, perfectly cooked chicken, rich sauce and a crisp buttery crust. Delicious!
Last year I even carved a little message in the crust to celebrate. Yes. I’m a big time dork. I just love making a big deal out of the little things in life.
But let’s move on to what the day is really about. Dessert. How many days to you have a mathematical excuse to enjoy seconds or thirds of dessert? Let’s start with this beautiful Strawberry Pie. Light crust filled to the brim with gorgeous vibrant berries and topped with a whipped cream. Yum!
Enjoy a pie full of succulent apples and spices with a perfect crumble top for those who prefer buttery crisp over crust. My Dutch Apple Pie is just the ticket.
One of my absolute favorite pies of all time is this Blueberries and Cream Pie. Berries swimming in a rich creamy filling? Oh buddy. Sign me up for this one!
If you aren’t a traditional crust kind of person. Why not try a little Oreo Mint Ice Cream Pie? Oreo crust with mint ice cream start this pie off and a rich chocolate fudge tops it off. Hiding in the middle is a surprising crunch of peanuts, whose salty punch makes this an absolutely perfect dessert.
Last, but certainly not least is my dad’s favorite Banana Cream Pie. Rich vanilla custard with sweet bananas and a whipped fluffy top!
I realize I’m a big tease and posted a photo of pumpkin pie without giving you a link to the recipe. I’m a horrible person and apparently have never posted my favorite pumpkin pie. Please forgive me. Here’s the link Libby’s Famous Pumpkin Pie. I just use the recipe on the back of the can of pumpkin with slightly more of all the spices! I hope you all celebrate Pi Day to the fullest and go back for seconds! Enjoy!
