It’s Pi Day! That happy day when bakers and nerds collide! Fun facts about Pi:
1) Pi is a number with an infinite, nonrepeating number of decimal places. The first few are 3.1415926535 (which is why, incidentally, March 14, or 3.14 is known as “Pi Day” amongst a small, geeky subset of the population. And food bloggers.)
2) The circumference of a circle is calculated by multiplying the radius (halfway across the circle) by 2 and pi (2*pi*r). Coincidentally, pies are circles, and 2 pie are better than one!
3) The area of a circle is calculated by multiplying the radius by itself and pie, (pi*r squared). However, we know that in reality, pie are round. (Except for slab pies).
OK, enough with the corny pie pi jokes. Pi is cool, and Pie is cool. Below are a roundup of pies we’ve made at The Domestic Front. Go bake a pie! It’s Pi Day!
