I am also a huge geek--calculus is my favorite math subject. I hope to wield a calculator for the powers of good someday. But for now, I'll bake desserts and answer questions about pi at scholar bowl meets.
This pie is in honor of Archimedes, who was the first mathematician to theoretically calculate the value of pi. My theory: all of the really special ingredients in this pie start with a letter in Archimedes' name.
If you can remember Archimedes, you have most of your shopping list.
• Cream cheese
• Honey graham crackers
• Ice cream
• Mini marshmallows
• Evaporated milk
• Dark chocolate
• Sugar (brown, powdered, and white)
There are two πs in this pie. But don't be fooled. This pie is not for the faint at heart. You should probably abstain from chocolate consumption for a few days before you commence the baking process. This is the epitome of π pie.
