For the Love of Pi Day

Ode to Pi Day. If you have never heard of the day it’s on 3/14, get it because pi is 3.14. Every year I take the ‘holiday’ to create a delicious pie. Usually, it’s a fruit of some sort- apple is my all time favorite. This year I was feeling something super decadent so I went with a turtle cake. Let me tell you it is DELICIOUS.

It’s sweet, salty, crunchy, creamy and so good. It’s a pretty heavy pie so splitting a slice between the three of us was still satisfying- maybe not for QB but definitely for me. Did I mention how EASY this thing was to make? It’s literally mix, chop and put in the fridge- badabing, badaboom.

This pie is great for bringing to your co-workers. I mean who doesn’t like the person who randomly brings a pie? Plus because it is so big it’s guaranteed to go a long way. This baby was given to Andrew’s co-workers and I am happy to report none of it made its way back home 😉

I’ll definitely be making this pie again in the summer. It’s kinda like those icebox cakes but in pie form. I can just dream of those hot summer days and having a sweet slice to cool down a little. Oh gosh, I am so ready for the heat of summer, hbu?

So you wanna know how to make it? Check out the recipe below!
