Pi Day Pie Party 2013

It’s here! It’s here! It’s finally here!

It’s Pi Day! The day math geeks everywhere pray to the Geometry Gods.


Are you as excited as I am for today? I hope so! I can’t wait to see all your pies!

We are having circles for breakfast, pies for dinner, and pie for dessert. And if you needs some fun activity ideas for today, go over and check out the Marie Callender’s Blog. I put together a whole Pi Day Activity post for them. It’s full of pi printables, pie coloring pages, and fun pi activities!

{Speaking of Marie Callender’s, besides providing a prize for the giveaway today, they are also offering a coupon for $1.50 off a Marie Callender’s Pie starting today! You’ll want to go print that coupon for sure!}

I made a printable for you too, with my favorite pi saying EVER.

  11. I really am not a Pie Maker but I had to be part of the fun. So I threw my reservations out the window and made some crust–I don’t know why I was scared of crust. I’m so happy with my Chicken Pot Pie for PI Day. One thing off my bucket list. I can see more pies in my future!! Thanks for the push.

    Marie Callendar’s pies and crusts are staples in my freezer. I use the crusts for quiches and always have a dessert stashed away, if company is coming by!

  23. Great giveaway! I don’t have a blog, but I post recipes to justapinch.com
    My Mile High Lemon Pie recipe is printed below but follow the link and view my pictures:

    1 9″ pie shell – your choice, but i think homeade is best
    3 c all purpose flour
    1 1/2 c shortening
    1 lg egg
    5 Tbsp ice cold water
    1 tsp salt
    1 Tbsp vinegar
    1 egg
    1 tsp water
    3 lg egg whites at room temperature
    1/2 c sugar
    1 bx (small size)lemon cook and serve pudding
    3/4 c sugar
    3 c water
    3 lg egg yolks
    2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
    2 tsp lemon zest-finely grated and minced

    1) MAKE PIE CRUST or use frozen/refrigerated.
    Preheat oven to 425.
    Cut shortening into flour in a large bowl until it looks like coarse crumbs. Beat an egg, and pour over crumbs. Add water, vinegar and salt and stir gently to combine. Divide into 3 equal balls and flatten into discs.
    Wrap well with plastic wrap and freeze 2 for future use. Freeze one for 20 minutes, then roll out, line pie plate and flute the edges.
    2) BLIND BAKE.
    Lay a sheet of parchment paper or foil (spray the surface that touches the crust with non stick spray) over crust-and fill with dry beans, rice or pie weights.
    Bake @ 425 for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, lower heat to 375.
    Remove the parchment/foil and weights.
    Moisture proof the crust by applying egg wash with a pastry brush on the bottom of the crust and about an inch up the sides.
    Resume baking the crust for 5-7 minutes until light golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

    (It needs to be ready as soon as the shell is filled)
    If you haven’t separated your eggs, do so at this time, placing the whites in a CLEAN mixing bowl and the yolks in a medium saucepan.
    With CLEAN BEATERS begin to mix the egg whites on medium high. Beat to soft peak stage-to check from time to time-turn off mixer and lift some whites up with the beaters, the tip should softly flop over.
    Begin slowly sprinkling sugar a spoonfull at a time, while beating constantly, until all sugar is incorporated.
    Continue beating until sugar is dissolved (not gritty when tested with thumb and forefinger) and stiff peaks are formed.
    Set aside.

    Preheat oven to 325.

    Empty pudding mix in the saucepan with yolks, add 3/4c sugar and whisk to incorporate, adding water a little at a time to avoid lumps.
    When all water is incorporated, place pan over medium to medium high heat and stir constantly with a wooden spoon.
    Cook until thickened and mixture reaches a full boil.
    Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice and zest.
    Pour into prepared blind baked crust.

    5) Immedately spoon or use a piping bag to distribute meringue mixture over hot filling, completely sealing to the crust and swirl as desired.

    Bake @ 325 for 15-20 minutes until tips of meringue are golden.

    Cool to room temperature or chill before serving.

  24. Thanks for hosting the fun party, Dorothy!

    Love this pie! Thanks for the recipe – from another “Dorothy”
    Coconut Key Lime Pie

    (click here for printable version)

    1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
    1 can (13.5 ounces) unsweetened coconut milk
    1/3 cup fresh or bottled Key lime juice
    7 large egg yolks
    1 pre-made graham cracker crust
    2 cups cold heavy cream
    2 tbsp powdered sugar
    3 tbsp sweetened shredded coconut, toasted

    1. Preheat oven to 325°F. In a medium bowl, whisk together condensed milk, coconut milk, lime juice, and egg yolks until smooth. Pour into pre-made graham cracker crust and bake until set but still slightly wobbly in center, about 40 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack, 1 1/2 to 2 hours, then refrigerate at least 3 hours (or up to 1 day).

    2. When ready to serve, in large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat cream and powdered sugar on high until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes. Top pie with whipped cream and sprinkle with toasted coconut. Serve and enjoy!
