Happy Pi Day!

3.14159265...etc etc. Hence why March 14 is also known as Pi Day.

In yet another edition of why I love being married to an engineer, Matt and I baked last night.

What did we make??

Mini Apple Pies!

And we even put it in our Pi pan. Because we're nerds. And we got it as a Christmas gift. 

You can go here for the recipe. It is time-consuming peeling all those apples and whatnot, but it isn't difficult and they are absolutely delicious, so in my book they're worth it!

They are now off to Matt's work where fellow Pi/pie-enthusiasts will enjoy them.

And for some action shots, because no cooking-related blog post is complete without them.

My husband being the expert apple-peeler 
Mix of all the spices + sugar + flour
Turns out a coffee mug was the perfect size to cut the dough!
8 apples, peeled, cored, and chopped mixed with the seasonings
Put the apples in the crust
Slice of butter on top, followed by scraps of dough, then brushed with melted butter 
Right out of the oven! Yum!
 So go make these for the math enthusiasts in your life, or just the pie enthusiasts that you know of. Matt brought up the point that you could really make any kind of pie like this, and makes it much easier to eat then 'real' pie. And you get more crust, which is oftentimes my favorite part!
