Happy Pi (∏) Day!

Did you know it was Pi Day?

Do you know why it is Pi Day?

Because today is March 14th = 3.14 = ∏

I really love math.

I actually wish that I had a job that involved math.

But then I remember that would require me going back to school, so the job I have is just fine.

But baking is kinda mathy.  Sometimes.

But not TOO mathy! I need to remember that I’m trying to get people to feel less intimidated by baking, not more intimidated…

Aaaaanyway. Look at these little cuties!

I thought about making a pie to honor this awesome math day.  But I do have to admit, pies are not my forte.  They require a sort of finesse that I just haven’t found yet.  My sister, on the other hand, is a pie goddess.  I’ll leave them to her for now.  And I’ll stick to the cookies.  Pie inspired cookies!

  1. haha I love Pi (∏) Day,too! looks so adorable!

  2. Darling cute little cookie pies! They look scrumptious!

  3. How ironic, guess what I just finished helping my son with? Determining the diameter, radius and circumference of circles. Happy pi day to you too. However, I would much rather sit down to a plate of your cookies any day then dealing with an evening of homework mania. Take care, BAM

    • What grade is that? I was trying to remember what grade I started learning about pi. Next time you have homework mania you will just have to add some cookies into the equation (pun intended). Cookies makes everything feel fun!

      • I guess that depends on which country you are in. However, currently in a British curriculum school in Hong Kong they start covering this concept in 7th grade but then it is reviewed all the way through high school. We really needed some of these cookies this week to help us get through the homework mania.

      • sponcwatkh,Thaoks for this relevant observation. Rather than issues, people feed into the cult of celebrity. This is not exclusive to the U.S., and today, the military is hot, so this is a natural.Hartmann did not feed at that trough, and he took care of his enlisted enlisted men. He did his job. I don’t see the enlisted men coming forward to endorse McCain.

  4. These truly look scrumptious!! Well done Bettie.

  5. You’re a genius. Plain and simple.

    These are SO fun and impressive! Great job!

  6. I’m so sorry BB…and I know I don’t really need to apologise…but I do (and maybe that’s where the apology becomes appropriate because I’m gushing…)just love your recipes, your commentary, your snaps….your….just everything!

    PS…Made your pecan/cinnamon rolls….bought the “Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day” by Hertzberg/Francois…..and have become a bread baking fool. I don’t eat bread….that’s where the “fool” part come in………………RR

    • CORRECTION CORRECTION: NOT pecan/cinnamon rolls….but….Cardamon Pecan Swirl Bread….cheated, however, and made them into rolls thinking they were NOT bread….less guilt as I ate more than my share!!

      • RR,
        They would be perfect as rolls! I was thinking that when I made them. Glad you liked them. That bread book is really a game changer isn’t it? I never used to make bread, and now that I know it is so easy I make several loafs a week. It is a problem.

        And no need to apologize. I love that you call me BB. I’ve never had a nickname and I kinda like BB. Maybe I should start introducing myself that way! Ha.

  7. I agree! You’re a genius! I can’t wait to try these!

    • Ok, you guys are just giving me a big head now. Thanks Elena. Let me know if you try them and what you think. I think I will make them again with as cherry or blueberry pies. To give them more color!

  8. ohmygoodness, they are so cute i just want to put one in my pocket!

    and by my pocket, i mean my mouth.

    and by one, i mean seven.

  9. I’m running around my room right now, yelling: THESE ARE SO FREAKING CUTE!!!! I love them–pie sandwich cookies. Eeeee. I’m in love.

  10. These look absolutely delicious. I would definitely feel less guilty eating these than a slice of pie. Can’t wait to try this recipe out.

  11. What a great idea! So creative & I bet they taste awesome. Can’t wait to try this out sometime.

    • Wow!Now there’s a point that I NEVER considered Dave.Just a wee question though.How the hell are they going to fit all those senators and congressmen/women into Westminster?We already have Cameron moaning about too many bodies there. Ah wait a minute, I’ve just realised, Cameron is pushing for a cut to the number of M.P.’s NOW everything is becoming clear. This would also explain the claim from Westminster about the U.K.’s &#0in8;22dependent” nuclear dterent. With America back “under” the wing of the U.K. then I guess the “independent” nuclear deterent then really does become independent.

  12. Awesome. I didn’t know about Pi day, but it’s on an awesome date – had never thought of that before. These look incredible, Bettie. I’m very impressed :D. Very cute too.

  13. What constitutes as baking apples? I thought all apples were bake-able – not that I’ve ever tried. I’ve caramelized apples, but I’ve never paid attention to what apples they were 😛

    • Any apple that is very firm, like granny smith, honey crisp, jonathon, ect. Not all apples are good to cook with. Some apples like mcintosh or red delicious, get too mushy when cooked.

  14. These look yummy! I am thinking I will make these using pears instead of apples. I have a friend with a couple pear trees in their yard. I get a bunch of them every year. Oh, or maybe with some of the peaches from my peach tree I hope to have this year! 🙂

    • Either sounds wonderful! I have a friend with a pear tree as well. I may have to steal that idea!

      I also think these would be too cute for the 4th of July with cherry and blueberry!

  15. How awesome! This are just the cutest things ever!! Anything personal-sized I love. What a great idea instead of making a huge pie, I’m gonna have to give these a try!

  16. What a great idea. I’ll be pinning this one!

  17. These are so cute and look so yummy. I love your blog and pictures.

  18. Gorgeous pictures! I am so in love with the milk and straw pic.

  19. These are so cute! Love it. Happy Pi day! I could totally eat a handful of these and then another lol.

  20. Must try these! They are too cute!.

  21. I have saved this very tasty and unique recipe. Definitely the most creative one I have seen for PI day. Pies really do not serve well to a lot of people, so I find these to be perfect for pot lucks! Buzz Buzz!

  22. Happy Pi Day!! How could it not be with these cute little pies:)

  23. oo I’m totally a math nerd and I’m in love with these bite sized pies!

  24. Aw these little apple pie cookies are so cute! I love that you did these for pi day while everyone else did a traditional pie! Really really love that you made little cookies out of apple pie! Such a great idea! And they look delicious!

  25. These cookies are adorable! And I bet delicious!

  26. These are too perfectly cute and a great way to celebrate national pi (e) day 😀
    You are such an awesome baker!

  27. Those are tooooo cute! My fear is that I would eat every single one of them because they look so yummy!! 🙂

  28. Bravo to you for these treats. They are so cute I want to make a million and give them as gifts.

  29. So very cute and interesting way to make apple pies! All your photographs are amazing…They should be on Taste Spotting and Foodgawker!
