The day has finally come to partake in the Pi eating! Not only do mathematicians get to educate people of the ratio circumference of a circle, but it's also a good excuse to eat pie! Below is a simple recipe for mixed berry pie. Happy Pi Day!
- Pie crust (2)
- 16 oz. (whole bag) of frozen mixed berries (blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries)
- 1/4 cup of lemon juice
- 5 tablespoons of sugar
1. If your pie crust is frozen, let it thaw for about 15 to 20 minutes.
2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
3. In a small saucepan, add frozen mixed berries and adjust the settings to medium-high.
4. Add lemon juice to the berry mixture.
5. After a few minutes, add sugar to the berry mixture and mix well.
6. Let the berry mixture come to a boil then reduce the heat to low and cover for about five minutes.
7. Uncover the berry mixture and carefully add it to the shell. You should have some sauce leftover. You can either save it for later or discard.
8. Place the other pie shell on top of the berry mixture and adjust.
9. Cut small splits in the center of the pie or the Pi symbol.
10. Cut a few strips of aluminum foil and cover the pie edges so it doesn't burn while baking.
11. Place the pie in the oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes.
12. Once the pie is done, take it out of the oven and let it cool for an hour. The pie filling will get thicker the longer it rests.
13. SERVE AND ENJOY!
HAPPY PI DAY!
