Do you know somebody that loves to eat but hates to study math?  Well here is the perfect way to get them involved in the study of the unit circle while enjoying a delicious chocolate pudding pie.  This recipe is simple, classic, and very easy.  

Step 1: Making the crust

For the crust:
10 graham cracker sheets (ie 20 individual squares)  This makes about 1 1/2 cups crushed
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon butter

In a food processor or with a rolling pin and zip top bag crush the graham crackers to make a fine powder.  Melt the butter in the microwave and add in the butter, sugar, and water.  Mix together until moistened.  Dump into a 8 - 9 inch glass pie dish.  Using your hands, press the crumble to form a crust.  Bake the crust at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 minutes.  Remove and let cool.
A finesse: axes' arrows must point only up and right.<br>Nice pie though (Y)
Update: I see what u mean. In some mathematics, arrows are viewed as indication of the positive direction. We see this used more in europe. It's an interesting concept because it makes labeling the axes' redundant. In america I find that we typically draw all four arrows. Thank you for your comment, I love learning new things every day!
Thanks for explaining that. I also have my BS in mathematics and had never seen this different notation. It is great to learn something new every day.<br><br>Also, very clever idea for a pie. I think it must be the most pi-related pie I've seen to date. We all knew learning could be fun, but who knew it could be so darn tasty?
This pie demonstrates that it is indeed possible to fit 2pi in one! :O!!!
I didn't know american notation,thank you too :]
im not sure what you mean, I have my Bachelors degree in mathematics and have never heard this
This will be a winner! Great looking pie!
Just in time for PI day. March 14th, and Albert Einstein's birthday.
what if I wanted to make a little over 3 times this amount?<br><br>then I would get Pi^2, and start to debate if the pie should be spherical.<br>
trig! noooooooooo!
I love the look of this pi(e)! I think I might use marshmallows instead of white chocolate.
coolest pie ever
Thank you!
i feel smarter from just looking at this pi
