This Is A Special Apple Pi Pie With An Electronic Twist

Combining my knowledge of electronics and my mother's cooking we created: The Ultimate Apple Pi Pie

When Eating The Pie You Can Play A Little Game.
Hide The Pi Shaped Apple Slices In The Pie
If You Find One In Your Slice You Win

Step 1: Making the Pie

1 box Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts
6 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (6 medium)
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon lemon juice

1. Heat oven to 350°F
2. Place 1 pie crust in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate
3. Press firmly against side and bottom
4. Cut the apples into slices and some into pie shapes; In large bowl, gently mix filling ingredients; spoon into crust-lined pie plate
5. Top with second crust
6. Wrap excess top crust under bottom crust edge, pressing edges together to seal
7. Cut slits or shapes in several places in top crust
8. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown
9. Cover edge of crust with 2- to 3-inch wide strips of foil after first 15 to 20 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning
10. Cool on cooling rack at least 2 hours before serving.

Step 2: Making the Cookies

2 cup of all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon of oil
1 tablespoon of butter
1/4 cup of salted water
A pinch of salt
2 teaspoons of baking soda

Mix together the butter, oil and salted water
2. Slowly add flour, and baking soda to the mixture
3. Mix until it has the consistency of dough
4. Let it settle for at least 1 hour
5. Flat the dough and  cut it into the pi symbol and the digits
6. Preheat your oven at 350 degrees
7. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown and crispy
8. Place on top of pie

Step 3: The Display

Dry Foam Semicircle
2AA Battery Holder & 2AA Batteries
10 33 Ohm Resisters
10 LED
8 Wooden Sticks
Spare Wire

Soldering Iron
Hot Glue Gun

Make hole in the dry foam for the 10 led to fit in about 1/2 inch from the circumference
2. Cut a hole on the round side of the dry foam about 3 inch long, 1.5 inch wide, and 1 inch deep
3. Attach the resistor to the positive lead and the wire to the negative lead for all 10 led
4. Place hot glue between the two leads to prevent contact with each other (That would break the circuit)
5. Stick the 10 led in the 10 made holes
6. Connect all the resistors with the space wire together to the negative lead of the battery and do the same for the other lead to the positive lead of battery
7. Glue the battery holder to the bottom hole
8. Print out your favorite pi symbol and download the spreadsheet template to create signs with 8 wooden sticks (View pictures as a reference
9. Place the signs in the foam

It Is Optional To Create A Switch To Turn The Led On
