Five Pie Recipes to Try on Pi Day

It’s March 14th, aka 3/14 or 3.14, and you know that that means — Pi Day! Seeing as so much of the East Coast is housebound due to a blizzard, it’s a great day to tackle a pie project, because pie is a) delicious, and b) a great way to pass the time when you’re stuck indoors. I’ve rounded up a few of my favourite savoury and sweet pie recipes, most of which can be made using pantry ingredients and won’t require a trip to the grocery store:

Bon Appetit – Cast-Iron Pan Pizza

Do you have a cast iron skillet? Flour? Cheese? Then you can have pizza for dinner, regardless of whether your local pizza place is delivering in a snow storm. Cast iron pizza to the rescue!

Smitten Kitchen – Better Chicken Pot Pies

This recipe is slightly more challenging, but if you happen to have a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store in the fridge, it comes together in a snap and is so delicious and comforting, you won’t even notice that you’re snowed in.

Joy the Baker – Ina Garten’s Apple Pie Bars

As with the cast iron pizza, you probably have all the ingredients on hand to make these apple pie bars. Bonus: no need to cut cold butter into flour or weave a complicate lattice top; just mix, bake, and eat directly from the pan while watching Netflix on the couch.

Pumpkin pie seems complicated until you try your hand at it and realize that it’s actually really simple to make. Use a frozen premade pie crust for an even easier Pi/Snow day.

Food + Words – Jam Hand Pies

These hand pies are filled with blueberry jam, which can be substituted for any type of jam you prefer (or have in the house). They’re easy to assemble, they freeze really well, so you can save any unbaked extras for the next snow day!
