Do you know what today is? It's pi day - March 14th - 3.14. And how do you celebrate pi day? With apple pie of course. That is exactly what my son's math is going to be eating this morning at their pi day celebration. (Actually, I think it is was an excuse to get me to make pies for the class.) I made some individual hand pies to send into school because they are easy to transport and carry and they don't require any cutting or serving utensils.
I even made pi shaped vents in the tops of the pies to commemorate the special day.
This was actually the second batch of mini apple pies that I had made in just under a week. The first batch that I made were heart shaped apple pies for a wedding reception. They were equally cute.
Mini Apple Pies
½ cup sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 egg white beaten
Put in pot along with ½ cup sugar, brown sugar, salt, zest from lemon and cinnamon.
Cut circles or hearts out of pie dough. (Either homemade or store bought.)
Bake 20 minutes at 425.
Happy Pi day!
