One of the pies shows the symbol of Pi, the Greek letter. The other has a circle of pineapple at the center. Dough in the center of the circle and around its perimeter form hexagons, which represent a way to approximate the value of Pi.
The pies have a cream cheese filling over crushed pineapple, inside a graham cracker or pastry crust.
Thanks to Joe P. at a random cooking website for providing the outline of this recipe.
Step 1: Ingredients and Utensils
9" pie crusts- 2 (I used one graham cracker and one pastry, but feel free to use any one you want.)
Corn Starch- 2 tablespoons
Salt- 1/2 teaspoon
Cream Cheese (softened)- 1 package (8 oz.)
Dough sheet- 1 package
Milk- 1/2 cup
Crushed pineapple with juice- one 20 oz. can
Sliced pineapple with juice- one 20 oz. can
Vanilla extract- 1/2 teaspoon
Sugar- 1/2 cup
Large mixing bowl
Electric mixer (not pictured)
Step 2: Preheat and Pi-neapple Layer
Combine crushed pineapple, 1/3 cup sugar, and cornstarch in your saucepan. Put on low heat, and stir sparingly until the mixture seems to be the consistency of jelly.
Step 3: Cream Cheese Layer
Step 4: Add Filling to Crust
Then, pour half of the cream cheese mix over each pineapple layer.
Step 5: Bake and Serve
From here, you can eat it hot or cold, with whipped cream or ice cream.
Enjoy your pi!
