As if we need a day in which to celebrate pie, one is handed to us in this rather whimsical holiday combining an American favorite and a mathematical constant. To be succinct — Pi Day.
Pi is the ratio used to compute the circumference, area, and volume of circles that works out to 3.141592653 for the first ten digits. It's written using the Greek letter π and pronounced “pie.” And because today is March 14th, i.e. 3/14, well, you get the picture.
To aid you in your celebration, here are four delicious pie recipes -- one savory, and three sweet -- that will surely delight one and all. Click on the links to bring up the recipes.
They are (clockwise from upper left): S’Mores Pie, Coconut Cream Pie, Six Layer Quiche, and Blue Heaven Key Lime.
What are you waiting for? Get baking!
