Happy Pi Day! 3.14 = PI.E!

And, Happy 2nd Anniversary to my wonderful hubby! Yes, we got married on Pi day two years ago today, and had Pi-shaped sugar cookie favors. Last year we decorated our year-old piece of wedding cake with the pi symbol and ate a couple fresh-made pi sugar cookies.

This year we are celebrating with some apple pi(e)! The hubby's favorite dessert of all-time is pie, so it's only fitting that I made some on our anniversary! (If I would have thought about it, I would have made Pizza "Pi" for dinner, too!)

This is a 6 1/2 inch pie using my new fiestaware pie plate! I mostly eyeballed this recipe, so you'll have to adjust it to taste, but for me, this pie used 3 granny smith apples, about a 1 tbsp of cinnamon, 1 tsp of nutmeg, 1 tsp of lemon zest, 2 tsp lemon juice and a pie crust of your choice. I baked it at 350 for about 45 minutes, covering the edges about halfway through so they wouldn't over-brown.

Happy Pi Day!!!

(And happy anniversary to my dearest hubby!)
