Pie recipes and gadgets for Pi Day

Pie SlicesI’ve celebrated Pi Day for almost as long as I can remember. I think it started back in junior high school, and while I may have skipped the occasional celebration, it has pretty much always been an event I like to take note of. It’s a bit nerdy, but Pi Day is about celebrating the number pi (3.14) on the date that approximates it (March 14, or 3/14). I celebrate by making and/or eating real pie – and while I’m not going to apologize for celebrating a slightly nerdy “holiday” every year, I’m more than happy to share some of my pie.

Pie Gadgets and Tips


  1. I don’t think there’s anything “nerdy” about “pi” day. It’s so creative!… and a super excuse to bake and eat pie! Gotta love it.

  2. I’m making Thin Mint Pie which I posted on my blog a couple days ago!

  3. Your pie gadget list left out the Pie Bird. Apart from the collectors, who accummulate them in every shape and size, serious pie bakers find them very useful. Inserted in the top crust they release the steam and prevent bery juice from spouting up all over the top crust. And they are very cute conversation starters.

  4. Pi day is a great idea. It doesn’t work so well if it’s 14/3 (like in Australia), but any excuse for eating pie sounds good to me.

  5. Another great pie gadget is the pie shield … which keeps the crust from over-browning in the oven! LOVE IT! So much easier than what I grew up using … little pieces of aluminum foil!
