The life of pi


Pi day pie https://huffygirl.wordpress.com, © Huffygirl 2012Today’s the day that math nerds and pie lovers look forward to each year: 3.14, otherwise known as Pi Day. It’s the day when the nerdy smart kids in geometry class get to show off how they’ve memorized pi to the nth decimal place, and pie lovers have an excuse to bake and eat pies.

Best husband is the pie man in our house. Sure, I can make pies too, but why should I when I have the foremost living pie expert right here to do it for me?

Best Husband’s Pi Day Blueberry Pie

Crust for a 9-inch double crust pie

3 1/2 cups fresh blueberries, washed and drained (or fresh frozen blueberries)

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 cup packed light brown sugar

5 tablespoons quick tapioca or flour

Margarine or butter, about 1 tablespoon, to dot top of filling

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients except the crust and the margarine. Set aside. Make your favorite pie crust. Roll out half of the crust and place in a 9 inch pie pan. Add the filling. Dot filling with margarine. Roll out and place the top crust. Trim edges, fold top and bottom crust edges under and together,  and make slashes in the top of the crust to allow steam to escape, in the shape of pi of course. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 35 minutes. Crust should be lightly browned.

Enjoy your pie and have a great Pi Day!
