The recipe for the layers and the frosting is from Sky High, which is an amazing book.  Buy it.  Now.  For the filling I used stabilized whipped cream flavored with peppermint extract.  Yummy yummy!  Happy St. Patty's day!

Apple Pies:

I did these in very small batches, so I just kinda...  Winged it.  For six, I used half an apple, a bit of lemon juice, some cinnamon, some nutmeg, sugar, a sprinkle of salt, some flour, and a little water.  I cooked it on the stove until the apples were just tender and spooned it into my pie shells.  After topping with some decorative cut-outs (should have used an egg wash!), I baked them for about 10 minutes @ 350.

Strawberry Rhubarb - My fave!

Using the same method as above, cook equal amounts of rhubarb and strawberries, some flour and some sugar on the stove.  So tasty.  My Grandma used to make these, and hey make me happy because they remind me of her Cheesy

Peach Pies:

These had peaches (no way!), sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of flour.  Using the same method Smiley

The pie shells were all made with a recipe for pate brisee, cut into 4 inchish rounds and baked @ 350 in cupcake tins for about 15-20 minutes before filling.

I'm trying to be more adventurous with my baking and follow my heart instead of a strict guideline...

I made cupcakes and decorated them with the pi sign and 3.14 for Pi Day...we had to bring stuff at school.
I wish I wouldve seen these little pies! So cute!

♫♥We should get jerseys cause we make a good team, but yours would look better than mine, cause you're outta my league. And I know that it's so cliche to tell you that everyday I spend with you is the new best day of my life;♥♫

Your pies look yummy!  I had pumpkin pie and mixed berry lime cupcake sized pie.  I am so glad someone else is celebrating the non scientific aspect of pi day.  Did you do anything science or math related?

Thank you, guys!

We could bring in pie for extra credit (I don't know how the administrators let him get away with it, but I won't complain!) in my physics class, so just about everyone did.  My teacher gave us one problem to work on for the entire period (that had absolutely nothing to do with pi lol), and told us to just relax and eat. 

I wanted to make sure mine were easily transportable and didn't require cutlery/plates, and I figured making them as individual servings was the best way to go about things.  It was funny watching everyone run back and forth from the cafeteria to beg for forks and knives.  lol

I <3 math and I <3 pie.
