Sweet and Savory Pie Recipes for Pi Day
Pi Day is the one magical day a year when food and math intersect in a truly delicious way. Pi is celebrated with pies of all shapes and sizes (apple, pizza, and cherry are among the favorites!) on this festive day.
This Pi Day is extra special because the date, March 14, 2015, is a continuation of pi the number (3.1415926…), which makes it the perfect choice for this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme).
We put the Culinary Content Network to the test to come up with some great pies to celebrate with, and here are some of the highlights:
- Dan Zehr of Platter Talk brings us a sweet strawberry pie that the kids will love.
- Healing Tomato brings us a super briny olive pie that makes for a great side dish to a Mediterranean meal.
- This week’s winner comes from Sarah Flinn at Call Me Fudge, who brings us a no-bake peanut butter pie that hits all of your taste buds in one sweet, creamy, savory, and crunchy bite.
All of the recipes featured can be made at home for about $20 or less, excluding the cost of small amounts of basic ingredients such as butter, oil, flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and other dried herbs and spices.

These Middle Eastern hand pies are sweet and tangy in all of the right places. Make the slightly sweet pie dough by hand or use store-bought pizza dough as a substitute.
Make this summery pie and think warm thoughts until the season appears. That’s how it works, right?
