Picture of Fruity Pi!
Pi Day!
This is my second submission into the Pi Day challenge and for this one I thought about doing something both unexpected yet explicit. When I think of pi, there are 3 numbers that pop into my mind right away: 3.14. So why not think out of the box and give those numbers the attention they deserve on their day! I wanted to start this submission with a fresh and fruity combination of delicious pies while keeping pi as the main theme and inspiration. I thought using fruit would be a nice tribute to all the past seasons and a big welcome to summer. The first digit is blueberry and cream cheese filled. For the point, a tiny classic apple pie with even smaller pi adorn the crust. For the second digit a sweet and tangy ripe peach and mango flavor. And last but not least, a sweet and tart, utterly delicious raspberry and cream cheese filling for the third digit. Nest these fillings in a crunchy, thin and buttery golden crust joined by a dollop of vanilla whipped cream and you'll leave your guests speechless on Pi Day!

Step 1: Pie Dough

Picture of Pie Dough
For this recipe I used store-bought pie dough. I printed the number templates in white copy paper, and then used a sharp knife to cut the silhouettes in the dough. Then I did a little cilynder to act as a barrier for the filling about a quarter of an inch thick. To make it look pretty I added a third piece of dough, this one more embellished on top of the barrier.

Before putting my pies in the oven, I brush the borders with some egg wash (tip: I also used it to make the layers of dough that can be seen in the picture stick!). To make egg wash, just crack an egg, add a tablespoon of water and beat until incorporated.

This recipe will need an oven preheated to 350 degrees F.
