Celebrate Pi day in style and impress your coworkers with one of these delicious pie recipes. Here is a collection of 14 pie recipes for Pi day, take your pick!
Every year, Pi day sneaks up on me. You would think that as a professional engineer I would be well aware of Pi day since I use the beloved Pi in so many of my calculations for work. But no, every year I fail to create a brand new pie recipe, so these oldies but goodies will have to do. On the brighter note, I manage to get this roundup out to you before the weekend so that you’ll have plenty of time to ponder over which pie will come alive in your kitchen for Pi day this year!
Roundup of 14 Pie Recipes for Pi Day
#1. Cookie Bomb Pie
This Cookie Bomb Pie has quickly become one of my favorite pies. It is made my with my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies inside the custard filling. Decadent for sure, and absolutely delicious.
If you know me, you know I’m a sucker for mini desserts and anything with a tropical flavor, oh and cheese. So these pretty little mini hand pies combine all three of my love together. They may be small, but they pack big flavor.
#3. Chess Pie Tart
Anyone thinks tradition chess pies are too sweet? I made this Chess Pie Tart with less sugar to suit my taste, without compromising flavor or richness.
Another recipe for mini hand pies coming at ya, this time filled with Homemade Dulce De Leche and drizzled with some more of that homemade good stuff. If you love Dulce de Leche (who doesn’t?) this one is for you!
#5. S’mores Bomb Pie
A cousin of the Cookie Bomb Pie featured above, can you guess what goes into the filling of this S’mores Bomb Pie? That’s right, all the necessary ingredients for campfire s’mores – graham crackers, good chocolate, and marshmallows all wrapped up in a custard filling.
Remember when cookie butter was all the rage? I still love it! These cute little pie pops are filled with cookie butter and baked up with a lollipop stick. They’re so much fun to eat and can work as edible gifts that will sure make someone’s day!
If you love apple pie, this recipe will give you an easy apple pie fix using store bought apple butter as the filling. Again, the individual sizing here is the perfect snack portion that you can pack for lunch or even share with your coworkers.
This Apple Tart is a long time favorite of ours. My husband requests this one every year for Thanksgiving, in part because he loves anything with the almond paste, which is so easy to make at home.
Deliciously ripe pluot slices laying on top of a layer of frangipane, I think this about sums these up!
#10. Apple Pie
A classic Apple Pie is always welcome at my dinner table any time! This one is spiced with cardamom and the crust is made with Apple Jack, classic but definitely not boring.
Another favorite pie at Thanksgiving in our house is this special pumpkin pie – a cross between a pumpkin pie and a pumpkin cheesecake. You don’t even need the decorative crust to impress your guests, I promise.
I know I say favorite a lot, but I really do love every single recipe I put on this site. So here’s another favorite, this Strawberry and Cream Pie is the only thing you need for strawberry season. Because once you have a taste of this, it will become the only way you want to eat strawberries anymore.
Another batch of cute mini pies, this time filled with creamy banana pudding, sliced banana and whipped cream.
You may not think of Pop Tarts as pies, but I assure you they are no different than hand pies when you make the shell with pie crust like I did these. Of course that makes them infinitely more delicious.
I hope you’ve enjoyed browsing through this list. And I hope that you will be making one of these recipes this weekend. Happy Pi Day!
