Einstein’s Birthday – 133
Can I just say that my brother got married in a MUCH more stylish decade, and had a better photographer (moi!).
So CLEARLY we need to celebrate. And we need PIE. I mean it’s PI DAY – it’s our obligation to have pie! Since it’s been two years since my husband and I have had an anniversary dinner out (yes, this is painfully pathetic, I’m well aware – I really need to look into this urban legend called a babysitter), I think we MUST have a super duper extra delicious pie to mark the occasion. It’s not exactly the four course meal at The Melting Pot that we used to always celebrate with, but it is delicious.
Truth be told I’m not a big pie baker. Not sure why. My pie recipe collection is pretty much limited to pumpkin, apple and chocolate chip. But the pies I do make are crazy good.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie – just make this. Seriously. Pi Day is your excuse. It’s like warm chocolatey amazingness on a plate.
Caramel Apple Nut Pie
Since I have so few pie recipes to share with you, let’s take a look at what great pie recipes other bakers and bloggers are baking up. Happy Pi Day!!!
