This year’s occurrence of the geeky new tradition, Pi Day, coincided with a rare snow day in the Northeastern U.S. and I had an unlikely opportunity to throw myself into a little baking to celebrate.
Cherry Pi’s – As individual, hand pies with a pate brisee crust, which I admit I completely underappreciated before now.
Fancy Meat Pi – This one uses my favorite, old fancy game pie mold. As with other times, I used a challah dough instead of the traditional, boiled water crust due to the spouse’s preference. This one has a chicken stew inside. I think any future instances will include a gravy on the side (per my preference, at least) – or at least more of a robust moat than the puddle that appears in this picture.
