Are you a math geek? When someone mentions pi/pie, do you think this? π
Or do you think chocolate, pumpkin, coconut cream?
Today is π Day. Why? Because it’s 3.14, which is the numerical equivalent of pi. π is commonly defined as the ratio of a circle’s circumference C to its diameter d. I think this is why pie is named pie, FYI. Because you know…round.
However, I am not a math person. Not even! I was passed through college calculus for the good of the math department. Don’t laugh. I’m serious! I am, however, a pie person. Just ask my posterior! I like ALL kinds of pie. I thought I’d share a family recipe, from my mother-in-law’s recipe box.
12 large marshmallows
3-4 (1.05 oz size) Hershey with Almonds candy bars
1/4 cup milk
1 cup whipped whipping cream
1 9″ pre-made graham cracker crust
Combine first 3 ingredients in top of a double boiler. (Don’t have a double boiler? Improvise like I do with a 1 qt. sauce pan stuck into a 2 qt. or whatever sizes you have). Stir until melted. Cool. Fold in whipped cream. Pour into pie shell. Chill and serve. Yes, you can add more whipped cream to the top because…whipped cream!
You’re welcome. If you have a recipe to share, do so! Happy π day!
