So I am a few days late for Pie Day, or Pi Day. In discussing this phenomenon with a math geek I was informed that a pie is a circle. But the formula for the area of a circle is Pi R squared.
Area of Circle:
area = PI r2
So to pay homage to the square in the pi, I created a square pie for Pi Day.
As is usual with pies, I just follow my heart. I had some gala apples so diced 3 of them up, and about a pint of fresh blueberries. I added sugar water, a dab of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and a touch of butter. Reduced down and then for kicks and giggles added a little bit of apple sauce to thicken it.
I then used frozen pastry dough, rolled them thin to line my square muffin pan. Lined the muffin with a puff pastry cut to size, filled it with the fruit filling, and topped with dough that I had cut the pi symbol. Baked at 350 for about 1/2 hour.
Happy Pi are Square day. First square pie I’ve ever made. and it was delicious.
