I love baking.  I love math.  I love Pi Day!  When cooking/baking, I usually just try to make it taste good, but this year I wanted to make something that looked cool and tasted great.  I was inspired by the recent “cookie within a cookie” brilliance, and I decided that I needed to figure out how to put π into a pie.  

Step 1:

Picture of
While brainstorming, this is the exact image that popped into my head….I just needed to find a way to make it happen!  I settled on a peanut butter pie with a chocolate π ring almost immediately.  I thought it would be relatively easy to dig trenches in the pie, and chocolate ganache seemed like an ideal filling.  First up: crust!

I made this pi pie last night. Brilliant idea. Mine didn't really work out--the pi symbol in the middle, that is. Luckily, I put a pi symbol on top so my co-workers would get it. :o)

The pie was delicious, though. Next time, I'll do a trial pi pie and leave more time to make it. The filling gets soft really fast! Still really amazing. Thanks!

You're very welcome, and that's a lovely pie! I'm so glad people are still enjoying my pi pie. :) I wasn't sure if this idea would work and did a trial run first - that was how I figured out that I needed to keep putting it back in the freezer!

I heard you like pi, so i put pi in your pie so u can enjoy pie while u enjoy pi.

i just had to do that, the set up was too perfect.

Haha yes! I wish I could say that Xzibit was my inspiration, but I didn't even know about it until my brother said something to me.

Can you make one that's sugar-free for those of us who are pi-abetic? :D
SarahPy (author)  dembry4 years ago
I don't have a lot of experience with "pi-abetic" cooking or baking, but as a scientist, I love to experiment! I'll have to get back to you on that one...
Looooove this - so clever!!!

Hi! i really loved the pie! xD is so geek and fun hahaha, but i can give you an advice, when you will go to cook, and make a tutorial, i recommend you that don't use your nails in color, use them in natural, because that looks insanitary ^^
she is 1st place for right now on the pi contest i wish you luck
Actually, no The (App) le Pi my brothers has 2 votes, this has one, which came from me.
SarahPy (author)  justme0844 years ago
If I ever do this again, I'll definitely keep that in mind. It shouldn't be a problem, though -- as I noted, this is not my usual look! :) I'm glad you liked the pie!
Thanks for sharing! Amazing pie especially for my mathematician friends:)
