3.1415... PI day or 3/14 Pie Day

Pie crust for the blueberry pie




While I appreciate what 3.1415.... PI is all about I am happier about Pie. Now really, who doesn't like pie? The hardest part of pie day is trying to figure out what kind out pie to make. Fruit, frozen, or cream pie? Do I leave it up to the randomness of social media suggestions or just make a decision? Social media it is. I asked the question of what pie I should make on Facebook. My cousin Ryan suggested blueberry so, blueberry it is for at least one.
The other pie was a S'mores pie. This one has been on my mind for a long time. Pie day was a great way, or excuse, to make it. OK, the real reason I chose s'mores pie was I wanted to use my kitchen torch. Who doesn't like fire? It's a cold, wet morning and I get to play with fire and eat pie. The S'mores Pie is a mishmash of several different recipes. One recipe for the crust and the filling is from Tyler Florence's chocolate tart. The result a sticky topping with a very rich, and I mean rich, decadent chocolate filling. The topping is ok, it didn't turn out the way I wanted so next time I might make my own  marshmallow topping.  But it is still good enough to eat, and on that note, Happy Pie Day.
