Picture of It's a Pi Pie Pi Pie Whirled
My secret dream job consists of holing up in a laboratory coming up with the newest Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavors. Between the whimsical word play and the ridiculous flavor combinations, I can't imagine a happier place to work. Alas, I'm not a mad food scientest and probably never will be, but that doesn't mean I can't get a little creative in the kitchen, especially on that very special day that unites math and dessert lovers...that's right, Pi Day. This easy-to-make and pun-filled pie takes pi and pie to new heights. First vanilla ice cream is whirled together with pieces of cherry pie and hand-piped chocolate pi symbols, then it's frozen into a chocoalte cookie crumb crust and topped with an even larger pi symbol and 32 digits of pi. Why 32 digits? Well, that's how many digits of pi it takes to have all the digits from 0 to 9 represented (I know, I even nerded myself out). Without further ado, here's how to make "It's a Pi Pie Pi Pie Whirled."

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
