An excuse to eat more pi(e)
March 14 is Pi Day. In honor of the holiday, we're sharing our best pi(e) recipes.
OK — so it's not actually "pie" day, but we'll take it. Pi Day is really a day to celebrate the mathematical symbol pi. The reason it's celebrated on March 14 is that pi is the symbol used for the number 3.14 (get it?). It was first celebrated back in 1988, but the U.S. House of Representatives didn't honor it officially until 2009. So, without further ado, we bring you our best pi(e) recipes in honor of Pi Day.

Sauerkraut and sausage mini pies
So this definitely isn't your typical dessert pie. In fact, this pie is best served as an appetizer or as the main course with a side of rice or mashed potatoes. It's a hearty pie, so give it a try before the warm temperatures hit.
