Gearing up for Pi Day March 14th

nemo | Mar 6, 2010 01:11 PM

It passed me by in a flash last year. March 14 = 3/14 = pi (3.14, the mathematical equation.) I remembered to email a few friends just for the fun factor, but I was too late for the traditional gift of food -- a pie on Pi Day. This year I'm giving locally, so perishable and juicy is okay. Savory or sweet okay.

Actually, I'm looking for individual portions because I have several neighbors and offices to deal with, and I'd like to got with mini portions.

I know, any pie would work, but I'm trying to figure out how to make pi pies. Cut a template and use it to sprinkle a pi symbol on top of a lemon sponge pie with powdered sugar? I don't have a torch.

What to do on a quiche? A tediously carved red pepper pi? On mini quiches, a sprinkle of smoked paprika over a pi template?

Ideas appreciated. Thank you.
