First, learn a bit about it! Here’s the rundown: “Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (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.”

Triple Berry Pie from Tastes Better from Scratch

The blogger of this recipe says this pie is perfect for any time you crave a fruity pie, whether it’s a holiday dedicated to pie or not! It has less sugar than most berry pies, she says, so it’s not overly sweet. If you love the sweet, tart taste of berries in a flaky, buttery crust, you’re in for a treat once you make this pie!

Easy Crumble Cherry Pie from Singing Through the Rain

This easy crumble cherry pie is just what it says it is — easy! The most complicated part of this recipe is the topping (and it’s not very complicated). Simply combine flour, almond flavoring, butter, and sugar to make the topping. Use frozen pie crust and store-bought filling to complete this recipe.

Coconut Cream Pie from Cincyshopper

This coconut cream pie is heavenly. Use sugar, cornstarch, half & half, egg yolks, egg, sweetened shredded coconut, and vanilla to make the filling and heavy cream, sugar, vanilla, coconut extract, and toasted coconut to make the topping. This sweet treat is a wonderful and delicious dessert to share with friends.
