Even the Swedish Chef loves pie! And maybe pi, too.March 14 is Pi Day, a day to celebrate math, puns, and pastry as smarties around the world lift their forks in appreciation of one of the most perfect desserts. So what if the American Pie Council designated January 23rd as National Pie Day and cherry pie gets it's own celebration on February 20th? When it comes to luscious fruit-filled goodness, we'll take a second or even a third helping.
The Greek letter "Pi" is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. The number -- which is 3.14 followed by a long string of digits -- is what's known as "an irrational and transcendental number," which means that it "will continue indefinitely without repeating," according to the experts at PiDay.org. In celebration of the irrational and transcendental, here are a few of Shine's favorite pie recipes.
