Pi Day

I didn’t know Pi Day was a thing until last year. I’m pretty sure that’s around the time someone made it up. I mean, I get it. I’m not that bad at math. I feel like people are grasping at holiday straws, though. Why not something like Old People Day on January 22nd?  Jeanne Calment lived to be 122 years old, hence the date of my proposed holiday. We could celebrate by planning for our possibly really long retirements. Just some food for thought.

Anyway, in honor of the holiday I think you’re supposed to make a pie. Having spent thousands of dollars on my baking education I feel I’m somewhat obligated to participate. But then again, it’s already the day of and I don’t have any of the stuff and so on. So instead I’ll show you some pictures of pies that I want to make, have made, or just want to consume whole. If you want recipes for any of the ones that I’ve made (or some that I haven’t, I still may have a recipe) let me know!

(P.S. I’m getting the pictures off google because I don’t make it a habit to take pictures of the pies I’ve made. I’ll source them at the bottom, though.)

I have a REALLY easy recipe for this one. Tastes good, too.

I think I've made this before but it might have just been in my dreams.

My aunt shared with me the BEST Blueberry Pie recipe. It has a crumb topping unlike the lattice in the picture. SO. GOOD.

I actually prefer pumpkin squares which is like pumpkin pie except with cake instead of pie dough (easy favorite, right?). But I made a pie this Thanksgiving using Paula Deens recipe and while I now am 30 lbs. heavier due to the amount of heavy cream it called for it was totally worth it.

I'm not a huge fan of apples (except in pie or juice form). It must be included, though, because I don't want to be called unpatriotic. ESPECIALLY not on Pi Day. The pie in the picture+vanilla bean ice cream=YUM.

So there you have it. I think I have recipes for all of those, if you’re interested. I also have a great and easy pie dough recipe if you want to brag to all your friends that you made your own pie dough from scratch. (People brag about that, right?)
