It's pi day. The fourteen year old girl who once sat in her closet crying over algebra homework would roll her eyes if I told her that in less than a decade she would be celebrating a math-based holiday.
Around this site, we take pi day very seriously. Not because I care so much about infinite numbers, but because I care an awful lot about buttery crusts filled with deliciousness.
Here's a list for your pi day inspiration.
This Chocolate Custard Pecan Pie is one of my favorite things that I have ever made. It's the lovechild of Chocolate Cream Pie and Pecan Pie. It’s chocolatey and spicy without being too sweet and I could probably eat at least half of this pie on my own....
These Raspberry Apple Hand Pies with Creme Anglaise are sweet and pretty, and the creme anglaise provides a faux ice cream element that I adore.
I discovered this recipe for Rhuberry Pie in the The Four & Twenty Blackbirds Pie Book and it is certainly the best fruit pie that has ever come out of my kitchen. I’m kind of addicted to the sour tang of rhubarb.
If you are in a savory mood this Skillet Chicken Pot Pie is totally the way to go. It’s a one pan dish and it includes puff pastry - nothing can go wrong.
This Pistachio Coconut Cream Pie is gluten-free and ridiculously good. I am a huge fan of pistachios, and their unique, buttery flavor certainly comes through in this pie.
P.S. The pistachio coconut crust is off the chain.
Happy Pi Day!
