Happy Pi day fellow mathematicians and pie aficionados!  When March 14th approaches in my house this means its time get out the rolling pins and crank up the oven to make a Pi day dessert. We do not settle for any old pie though, there is nothing worse than biting into a beautiful looking pie to find out it tastes just awful.  This pie delivers as it is both beautiful and unbelievably delicious.  This recipe is one my family has been making for years and is very easy as it can be made mostly out of pantry ingredients.  
    Here are my easy to follow step-by-step directions for you to follow to make the perfect pi day masterpiece.

Making the dough is easier than you may think:

1) Combine flour and sugar in a chilled bowl. Cube up the butter and cut it into the sugar/ flour mixture until it forms a pea like consistency.
2) Add in the ice water about a tablespoon at a time to the mixture and mix the dough with a fork (kneading with your hands works as well) until the dough comes together and forms a ball. At this point stop adding water and divide the dough ball into two halves. Flatten into two discs and wrap with plastic wrap. Chill the discs in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
