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.
