These were made for Pi Day. 3.14. March 14. Hello? Is this thing on?
I went to an awesomely nerdy ‘Pi Day’ party, I brought a savory Mac ‘n’ Cheese pie, but I also wanted to bring something sweet…with a nerdy touch. Plus everything tastes better on a stick.
strawberries, cut into small pieces
egg for egg wash
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Make or buy your pie dough – roll it out and cut out circles using a 2-1/2″ biscuit cutter.
Place the discs on a silpat lined baking sheet. Press the popsicle sticks into the dough so that they’ll stay put when baking.
Mmm. Nutella. My favorite. I’d eat this for breakfast EVERY morning when I lived in Italy. Perfect on a piece of crispy toast.
Place the cut strawberries in the center of the discs. Add a dollop of nutella in the center and place another disc of dough on top. pinch the edges closed – just a warning, liquid is bound to ooze out.
Now I took it one step further and made them super nerdy. I printed out a “PI” symbol, then cut it out for a template.
I then placed it over rolled out pie dough and using a clean x-acto, cut out the dough. Place the pi symbol on top of your little pies.
Brush the tops with an egg wash: on egg, beaten with a few Tablespoons of water.
Bake the pies for 12-15 minutes until browned then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
A perfectly nerdy treat for the nerdiest day of the year!
