There’s no better time for pie than Pi Day!

Pi Day may be a holiday celebrated mostly in the math world, but here in the food world, we think it’s also a great excuse to eat (what else?) pie! Not that we really need an excuse to eat delicious baked goods.
There’s no better time for pie than Pi Day!

March 14th, or 3/14, is Pi Day. How many digits of pi can you recite? Most people know pi simply as 3.14, but it is actually a never-ending mathematical constant. Some celebrate Pi Day by reciting as many decimal digits of pi from memory as possible, but we’re celebrating by having a slice or two of the real thing. The world record holder recited upwards of 60,000 digits in almost 24 hours. Now that man deserves a piece of pie!

In honor of Pi Day, try one of these fruity pie recipes today.
