Pi Day, 2012

Did you know that tomorrow, March 14, 2012 is “Pi Day”?  What exactly IS Pi Day?  Well, I googled a definition and found this:

“Pi, Greek letter (π), is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi Day is celebrated by math enthusiasts around the world on March 14th. Pi = 3.1415926535…”

Blink… blink.  Ok, then!  Honestly, I’m not ever going to be accused of being a math enthusiast… but I do like PIE… so in honor of “pi” day, let’s chat about PIE, shall we?

From Quick Dish, a great tutorial on making mini peach pie in a jar!  Perfect for a shower or party dessert!

An absolutely GORGEOUS triple berry pie recipe from Instructables, with detailed instructions on how to make a decorative pie crust like this:

I found a great tutorial series on MarthaStewart.com, for making decorative pie crusts.  The series was technically written for Thanksgiving, but definitely works for pi…er… pie day!

For a non-traditional, but YUMMY looking pie, check out the Family Kitchen… and her S’mores pie:

And last (but not least), check out this recipe from Country Living, for MINI cherry pies.  I think these would be perfect come summertime for an afternoon/evening barbeque.

So glad those math enthusiasts came up with PI day, aren’t you?
