Today is March 14, 3.14, which means that it is yet again the iconic ‘pi day.’ Pi day is celebrated yearly in the United States, on the day when the date matches the first three numbers of pi. People could celebrate this day by attempting to solve complicated math equations (in fact, some do!) but I prefer to honor this day by making actual pie. Below are a few of my favorite pie recipes to make on this day. Happy pi day!
This particular pie is one of my favorite desserts. The blend of maple and pecan meshes perfectly to coat your taste buds in a sweet, nutty bliss. This whole wheat crust adds a flavorful layer to the pie that goes well with its existing tastes. I would recommend baking this pie if you like desserts with a little southern charm.
If you’re like me, you cannot get enough of chocolate. This chocolate pumpkin pie brings the traditional pumpkin dessert to an entirely new level. Best of all, Martha Stewart makes her recipes easy to follow.
This is the perfect and unconventional pie for someone who wants to celebrate pie day, but does not have a lot of time. Only 6 ingredients make this delicious dish, and the peanut butter and chocolate make it taste like one giant peanut butter cup!
Alton Brown’s recipes are generally foolproof, and this lemon meringue pie recipe is no exception. His instructions walk you through how to make a lemon curd that is the right amount of sweet and tangy, and a tall and fluffy meringue.
The banana cream classic pie is another favorite of mine. This recipe in particular provides precise instructions and even a helpful video to help you make it right the first time. It is truly a delicious end-of-winter treat!
Although it’s not quite the season, a cherry pie is exactly the right sort of sweet with which to celebrate. Its versatility is one of its most appealing features – this pie can be as sweet or as tangy as you would like.
Pi day just would not be pi day if I left out one of the most beloved pies in America. The apple pie is just as iconic as pi day, and what says celebration more than a delicious, fruit-filled treat?
