Pie for Pi Day titlesPi – the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter – is a favorite of the mathematical world. In its decimal form it is a number that never ends and never falls into a repeating pattern. Pi Day is celebrated around the world every year on March 14th. This year is special because not only is it 3.14 it is also 2015 making the date 3.14.15 so if you celebrate Pi Day at precisely 9:26 and 53 seconds a.m. you can hit the first ten digits of Pi …  3.14.15 and 9:26:53 (3.141592653)

Enough with the math – on to the food!  It is customary to celebrate Pi Day with, what else, PIE! So without further ado here is a round-up of some delectable pie recipes ripe for your Pi Day celebrating. Go all out and eat pie for breakfast, lunch and dinner – and raise a fork to Newton, Einstein, Pythagoras, Fibonacci, Pascal, Descartes and all the other great minds who made numbers look so easy.
