Pie for Pi Day, 2011

March 14th is Pi Day (3.14, get it?), and being a big ol' geek who loves to bake, I celebrate with some Pi Pies. Two of these will get turned into entries in the annual Serious Eats Pi Day baking competetion (along with a whole slew of how-to/making-of pictures), but they’re all to share. As it happens, March 14th is also my employment anniversary, at a company whose business involves lots of math–it’s right there in the name, in fact–so some of these will make it into the office, one is heading to my daughters’ school for their teachers, and we'll have a little bit at home.

 

I'll most likely be posting pics and recipes of most of these over the next few days, as I have time. Since two of them were made for the baking contest, recipes and instructions are up over at www.instructables.com
