Today’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!

Happy Pi Day and enjoy that yummy looking pie. I just made a scarf based on a “Pi” pattern. Fun- you start with 4 stitches and keep increasing.
I’ll have to check out this scarf Lisa. Happy Pi Day!
Now I just need some fresh Michigan blueberries…….happy pi day 🙂
Happy pi day to you Bella. Come to Michigan this summer and get some of our delicious blueberries.
Sounds delicious and seriously naughty!
Such a cute play on words Huffy Girl! I love the looks of that pie.
Thanks LN. Maybe you should make yourself a pie today for Pi day (or buy one -that would be easier!)
I make pies ALL the time. It is a favorite thing I like to make for my son-in-law. Don’t tempt me.
Your son-in-law is pretty lucky then.
