National Pi Day is today – March 14, 2015! National Pi Day celebrates the Greek letter Pi (“π”) and the mathematics number, 3.141529… National Pi Day website says it is used as a ratio of a circle’s circumference to diameter, and it is particularly helpful because it stays constant for all circles. For example, the area of a circle is πr² As tomorrow is 3/14, it matches up perfectly. Although National Pi Day is a great reason to help on your child’s latest math assignment, it is also great reason to show your gratitude towards others by sharing a pie.
Pies have been around for centuries, and are one of the most common baking items to give to others. Everyone loves pie! Why not show a little bit of gratitude towards a friend, family or co-workers tomorrow by sharing a pie? gThankYou! not only offers Turkey, Ham or Grocery Gift Certificates, but also offers Pie Gift Certificates – what could be better to celebrate this fun mathematical day? This gift would be perfect for anyone you know to celebrate a little bit tomorrow. Pie Gift Certificates by gThankYou! can be redeemed for any brand of frozen or fresh pie, in almost any grocery store nationwide.

1 box refrigerated pie crusts
6 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (medium)
¾ cup sugar

¼ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Heat oven to 425°F. Place 1 pie crust in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate. Press firmly against side and bottom.
- In large bowl, gently mix filling ingredients; spoon into crust-lined pie plate. Top with second crust. Wrap excess top crust under bottom crust edge, pressing edges together to seal; flute. Cut slits or shapes in several places in top crust.
- Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown. Cover edge of crust with 2- to 3-inch wide strips of foil after first 15 to 20 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning. Cool on cooling rack at least 2 hours before serving.
- Enjoy with friends and family! It’s perfect with vanilla or cinnamon ice cream.
Happy Pi Day!
