easy as pi


Happy Pi Day!

Pi Day caught me a bit off guard this year, but was not going to let my unpreparedness result in pielessness. I had some errands to run this afternoon, so I stopped by the store while I was out to get a pie crust and some frozen berries, and voila! The Pi Day Pie tradition has been upheld.

This pi pie is the 3rd such pie I have under my belt. (Not to say that I ate three whole pies today. Though I could imagine such a feat. I do love me some pie.) My Pi Day tradition started with a pi post back in 2008, which then inspired me to bake my first pi pie. Pi Day of 2009 was a pieless day, due to traveling and attending a wedding, but then I did recapture the pi magic in 2010.

In celebration of Pi Day, I offer you a gallery of pi pies past and present.


My original pi pie, from 2008. I was so fond of it, I even wrote its obituary.


Last year’s pi pie was an apple pi.


This year’s pi Pie is of mixed berry heritage.

  1. Oh my gosh! I’m a total failure as a mathematician! I didn’t even notice it was Pi Day!!! I even passed up the opportunity for vegan apple pie for dessert at the vegetarian diner tonight. I should give back my PhD.
    (On the bright side, the fact that I’m in a different time zone from you means that I did indeed see this post while it was still Pi Day!)

  2. Pi day is so totally up your alley!

  3. Oh, yum. Your pies look good.

  4. Mmm. I made a lemon pie so I could have pie for breakfast on pi day. But I did not think to cut a symbol into it.

  5. I love your pi pies!

  6. Now that’s my kind of celebration.

  7. We are such dorks that 314 is part of our license plate number for PIE. :-)
