A Celebratory Glass of Pi-not Grigio?

It's Pi Day today, which means the internet is fluffing itself up with pictures of pi-themed pies, as it has the past several March 14s (3/14). To get it all over with, Neatorama has 14 different pi pies of varying impressiveness. (Last year we commemorated the holiday with recollections of baked goods.)

My cousin gave me this Pi Dish a few years ago. It makes all pies better, I think. Also, that peanut butter pie is perrrrfect! I must learn!

@Third Wave Housewife I would murder that fractal pear pie.

At my brother's wedding, dessert was pies and Bergers cookies (a Baltimore delicacy). Magnificent.

@area@twitter Yummm, Berger cookies. I should hate them, and yet I love them.

Pi day, or, the best day ever in elementary school math class.

Also, everyone go make/eat some Toll House Cookie Pie. Unless you can't because of dietary reasons, in which case FIND A WAY

@Nutmeg Is cookie pie when you're too lazy to scoop cookies so you just eat half the dough and toss the rest in a baking dish?

Nutmeg

@tortietabbie ALMOST, except it is even easier than making cookie dough! Like, melt butter, add sugar and eggs, put in some chocolate chips and bake that fucker

tortietabbie

@Nutmeg Oh shit.

I've made vegan AND gluten-free versions of cookie pie, so I am here to say taht even if you think you have dietary reasons not to eat it, YOU CAN FIND A WAY.

Oh God. My friend's college roommate actually said pie-no grai-jo and refused to be corrected. Flashbacks.

I don't need an excuse for pie, per se, but I'm using this anyway.

I'm making a (vegan) PB-chocolate moussey pie. And drinking some pi-not greeg, ofc.

@tortietabbie that peanut butter pie is so tasty. Perfect for basically every occasion (other than those that include people with peanut allergies...)

SarahP

@tortietabbie Oh yummmm I've heard that recipe is so awesome and decadent. Enjoy!

I feel like when I looked at this post before my conference call there was some joke I'm not seeing now?

@leon.saintjean Mmmmmyes. About edible (and edible) pies.

I made mini apple pies from scratch on Friday. I wish I had saved a couple for pi day, but they were just so good! They didn't even last the weekend.

Two-Headed Girl

I made tiny cherry pies! With Pi on top! I no longer feel as impressed with myself after seeing that apple pie. DAMN. (Also, who has time even?)

I made rhubarb, brought it to work. But I didn't make a pi pie. But crumb top, and strawberry jam in the filling, because rhubarb plus strawberries are a win, but baked strawberries are a texture fail.

While it doesn't look the most appetizing, I like the fact that the ingredients for the bacon one follow the Fibonacci sequence.

Ingredients:
Pinch of salt (no numerical equivalent for a pinch; thus spared from the Fibonacci sequence)

1 pint heavy whipping cream (split into two doses: .75c + 1.25c)
1 cup butter
2 cups flour
3 tbsp sugar (split into two doses: 2tbsp + 1tbsp)
5 drops vanilla extract
8 oz chocolate (dark), chopped
13 tsp ice water
21 pieces bacon (11 slices, cut in half = 22 pieces. you can’t not eat a piece!)

Optional: 3.14 tsp rainbow sprinkles

The pie shop down the street from me gives out mini-pies for knowing 10 decimal digits, and 4 full-size pies (1 for each season in the upcoming year) for knowing 100 on this great day. The celebrations there these past 2 years have entirely made up for every awkward moment obsessively memorizing this sequence of digits brought me in my childhood.
