Pies for Pi Day

Happy Pi Day! 

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (or the Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159. The holiday was founded in 1988 and has gained popularity over the last few decades as a widely celebrated event by all. 

Pi Day is an annual opportunity to try and recite the infinite digits of Pi, or more importantly, eat pie.

Want to try making your own pie to celebrate? Highlighted below are a few recipes for pies from some of our cookbooks in Special Collections.
