22 Pie Recipes to Help You Celebrate Pi Day
It’s pretty fair to assume that we don't need a reason to bake pie. But if there's any hesitation, we couldn't think of a better time to eat pie than on Pi(e) Day. Yes, it’s that time of year—March 14, or 3.14—where dessert lovers and math enthusiasts can unite over numbers and delicious slices of pie. Just in case you need a math refresher, pi is the ratio between a circle's diameter and its circumference. So, it’s only fitting that our edible interpretation of the formula be in the form of a round dessert. All the sweet and savory pie recipes we’ve included in this collection bake up in a nice, neat circle of decadence and deliciousness. Since pi has an infinite number of digits, we thought it’d be appropriate to include these 22 recipes with infinite filling possibilities. From sweet classics to meaty, comfort food favorites, they're as easy as pie!
