Happy Pi Day everyone! We here at SE, being both food obsessives and...nerds...have a longstanding love affair with this food holiday. And while this editor in particular would love to celebrate with a slice of juicy blueberry pie, times are what they are (read: cold) so we'll have to celebrate with seasonal favorites instead.

Who doesn't love pie? The mixture of flaky crust and rich filling makes for a sophisticated yet comforting dessert. In honor of Pi Day, we've rounded up some of our favorite pies in the city.
Every year I look forward to March 14th (3.14, baby!). It's a day that unites math nerds and food nerds in glorious pie-fueled gluttony. These are my top 5 top American Classic pies to celebrate. You've got a week to get baking.
We saw many amazing pies entered in our Pi(e) Day Baking Challenge with Instructables this year, but it's time to raise our forks to the grandest of them all. Check out the winners of this year's contest! Special thanks to our prize partner King Arthur Flour, and to all of the pie-bakers who entered this year.
March 14th is International Pi day, though if math were truly a universal language as they say it is, we'd be better off calling it Universal Pi Day. You know what else speaks to everyone across cultures, borders, and even species? Pies. Nobody doesn't love pie. At least, nobody worth inviting to your next dinner party. In the spirit of International Pi Day, we offer you an entire, soup-to-nuts, all-pie feast.
Happy Pi Day! It's not too late to enter our Pi Day Pie Contest. You have until March 18! In the meantime, check out some of the great entries we've received so far, including sushi pie...
It's that time of the year again. Pull out the butter and protractors because it's time for our annual 2013 Pi Day Contest, which begins today and will run until March 18. Once again we're teaming up with the fun folks at Instructables to honor the math constant pi (3.14159...) on March 14 with many slices of its delicious homophone pie.
Many pies were entered in our Pi(e) Day Baking Challenge with Instructables this year, but it's time to raise our forks to the grandest and geekiest of all. Check out the winners of this year's contest! Thanks to everyone who entered.
March 14 is a very important day for both math people and pie people (and who doesn't fall under at least one of those categories?). Pi Day (3/14) not only celebrates over one trillion digits past the decimal point, it also gives people like us another excuse to eat pi's buttery crusted homophone. Need pie recipes? Both savory and sweet, we've got you covered. And it's not too late to enter our 2012 Pi Day Bake-off contest!
In anticipation of 3/14, we asked you send in your favorite recipes for Pi Day. From a mathematician's dream crust to a twist on Banoffee pie, we'd be more than happy to celebrate with any of these 6 wonderful recipes.
Pi Day is a day to honor 3.141592..., our friend π, and there's no better way to celebrate than by eating its homophone pie. We're teaming up with the crafty folks of Instructables again for another Pi Day Baking Challenge. All you have to do is bake a pie to enter to win an iPad (er, piPad) and many other great prizes!
You never know what sort of pie you'll get in Arkansas: fruit, cream, chess, meringue, fried or icebox. But chances are, it's going to be good. Narrowing down the best pies in the state wasn't easy (as pie, har har) but in honor of Pi Day, we figured it was the right time to address this question.
There is some disagreement over when to celebrate Pie Day. Some (including the American Pie Council) cite January 23 as the day, the reason allegedly being that the digits of 1/23 are "easy as pie." Others (generally math nerds) say it must be March 14, or "Pi" Day. Of course, this is a very silly argument, because really, it's an opportunity to enjoy pie on two separate occasions.
All the votes have been tallied, and it's time to announce the winners of the 2010 Pi Day Bake-Off we co-sponsored with the good folks of ScienceBlogs. Was it easy as pie? Oh, definitely not. There were too many ridiculously clever and tasty-looking entries, but without further ado, the winner's circle.
In honor of Pi Day this past Sunday, March 14, we devoted our Weekend Cook and Tell to the baking of all sorts of pies. (Can you tell we're big fans of Pi Day here?) With no limitations on what sort of pie was appropriate (sweet or savory) for this challenge, the responses flooded in. Take a look at some favorites.
Do you like staring at photos of pie? And thinking about math equations? OK, even if you said no to the second one, we need you. It's time to vote for the best entry in our 2010 Pi Day Pie Bake-Off we co-sponsored with the good, equally pie-obsessed folks of ScienceBlogs. We've narrowed it down to our ten favorites. Voting ends at midnight EST on Thursday, March 18, and winners will be announced on Friday. Let the voting begin! »
