Bake at 375 degrees for 35-45 minutes for until when you giggle pie it is set like jello. UNLESS you want to add pi logo or any logo and then continue reading.

Bake pie for 15 minute and then add pastry logo and keep cooking. This is how I created my logo:

Printed logo off computer.
Rolled out dough between two pieces of wax paper.
Used printed logo as pattern and cut out logo.
Removed wax paper and placed on pie after 15 minutes of cooking.

Step 5: The Hardest Part

Picture of The Hardest Part
The most difficult part of making this pie is waiting for it to cool and set. Pie must cool for 1 1/2 hours before serving. :(

Which means I'll be waking up at midnight to have a slice... and this pi challenge is ruining my diet!
