Many of us can probably remember celebrating PI Day back when we were in school. That mathematical number for pi 3.14 that goes on forever is often honored by making pies. Since today is March 14…here are some facts about the day as well as some awesome deals that make PI Day something to celebrate.
Pi, also known by the Greek letter “π,” is a constant value used in math that represents the ratio of a circumference of a circle to its diameter, which is just about 3.14….15…9265359… (and so on). Not only that, but the fourteenth of March is also Albert Einstein’s birthday. In 2009, US Congress declared Pi Day a National Holiday.
So, how did Pi Day end up in a country-wide phenomenon? Check out the history at:

Here’s my recipe for an easy, tart, and refreshing KEY LIME PIE.
Take One Graham Cracker Crust. Set aside.
In a cold mixing bowl beat together at HIGH SPEED:
1 C of whipping cream (until stiff peaks form). ADD:
The juice from 5 limes,
One can of Sweetened Condensed Milk. Beat until well-blended.
Pour into prepared crust. Freeze until set or overnight. I like the consistency of the frozen pie. Let is rest outside the freezer about 10-15 minutes before slicing. Sweet-tart heaven in a pie pan!
HAPPY PI (PIE) DAY!
Wow, this is great and so easy, your key lime pie recipe. Thanks for sharing.
You’re welcome. It’s a year-round favorite at our house.
I’m going to try it, it’s my FAVORITE w/ lemon meringue pie.
After reading this my husband and I decided we would go to Boston market for dinner tonight and get a pot pie!
That sounds yum!
Turns out that the Boston Market information wasn’t quite accurate. The actual offer was buy a chicken pot pie and a drink and get a second pot pie free.
Deceptive advertising…did you get a pie?
Nice! Now I want pie!
Go for it…so many delicious pies to choose from…
MMMmm. Sounds good. I won a pie contest down at the library one year on Pi Day with a hickory nut pie I baked.
