Today is 3-14.
To mathematicians loopy over numbers, it is Pi Day. They figure that March 14 = 3/14 = 3.14 = 3.14159, which in their world is pi. It also happens to be Albert Einstein’s birthday (March 14, 1879), so they have a double reason for their pi party.
(Here’s a great, simple explanation of Pi, for those of us who are not mathematicians.)
Foodies, never shy about appropriating some else’s day, have turned Pi Day into PIE DAY.
So let’s bake! Here are 5 of my favorite pies to bake for a sweet finish to Pi Day. Click the links under each picture to take you to my tried-and-true recipes.
