March 14th * PI day !!

March 14 is Pi Day. It is a day to celebrate the mathematical constant pi (π) and to eat lots of pie. … Celebrated in countries that follow the month/day (m/dd) date format, because the digits in the date, March 14 or 3/14, are the first three digits of π (3.14), Pi Day was founded by Physicist Larry Shaw in 1988

My PI card for my son’s math teacher :

Easy Apple Pie : March

  • Easy Apple Pie

    box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
  • 6 thinly sliced apples

  • Directions :

    Heat oven to 425°F. Place 1 pie crust in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate. Press firmly against side and bottom.
    In large bowl, gently mix filling ingredients; spoon into crust-lined pie plate. Top with second crust. Wrap excess top crust under bottom crust edge, pressing edges together to seal; flute. Cut slits or shapes in several places in top crust.
    Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown. 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. Cool on cooling rack at least 2 hours before serving.
