I'm half Greek. I've lived there all my life...until last year, when I moved to the U.S. And once in a while I would hear mention of a mysterious mathematical concept called pie. I'd never heard of it . (well, except for PIE pie, obviously..) I think I caught on when I saw the " mmmm.... π" t-shirts. News flash(in a totally NOT mean, superior way): π is not pronounced like pie; it is, in fact pronounced just like p. ........
Ok. Done complaining. Now I got that out of my system, I adore anything that links sweetness and math in any way, shape or form. Cookie Pascal's triangle? YES!!! π= pie=3/14? Awsome!!!
Just please, please, say it right!
Step 1: The Tart....
Now I'm done with all that, let's move on to the sweet. Yes, it's a tart. I am continuing on my lone, peaceful protest of mispronounciations, but believe me: this is yumminess. A crumbly, buttery shortbread crust with 3 scoops of sweeet, creamy coffee ice cream over 14 pieces of chocolate. (yay. 3/14!) eat it.
So, here's what you need:
1 cup of flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 stick of butter, melted
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
3 (fat) scoops of ice cream(flavor of your choice, but I used coffee)
14 pieces of chocolate(you could use chips, but I just cut chunks off a block)
