Calling all Raspberry Pi enthusiasts and geometry loving bakers! Solve the recipe, and then treat your tastebuds to this delicious 6-ingredient raspberry pi(e)!

(Don't worry; if you want to just make pie without doing the calculations first, I'm including the answers to the math problems in Step 5.)



-(3.14)/(2.512) c. crushed pretzels

-1^2 sticks melted butter

-2/6 c. sugar


-.5 c. corn starch

-(3.14)/(6.28) c. sugar

-(3.14)/(4.71) c. water

-√16 c. raspberries

Step 1: Grease Pie Plate; Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit

Step 2: Combine Crust Ingredients; Press Into Prepared Pie Plate; Bake at 350 for 10-12 Minutes

(If the crust is not moist enough, add 1 tablespoon - 1/3 c. water as needed before baking)

Step 3: Make Filing

Mix corn starch and sugar thoroughly, and then incorporate the water. One this mixture is smooth, pour over raspberries (mine were frozen, but fresh should work) in a saucepan and cook over low-medium heat. Bring to a boil and continue to cook until gelled and no longer pink but a beautiful red. (Stir continually.)

Step 4: Once the Crust and Filing Have Cooled Slightly, Pour Filing Into Shell and Freeze for 2 Hours or Until Set

Step 5: (Optional) Serve With Whipped Cream

Step 6: Answers to the Math Calculations...


- 1.25 Crushed Pretzels

-1 stick butter

-1/3 cup sugar


-1/2 cup corn starch

-1/2 cup sugar

-2/3 cup water
