Pie Recipe for Pi Day


How to crimp the edges.

Today is International Pi Day, a day when math geeks eat pie to celebrate the number pi (3.14).

If you want to make your own pie, here’s one of my favorite crust recipes from A Slice of Humboldt Pie: Stories & Recipes:


4 c. flour

2 tsp. salt

1 T. sugar

1-3/4 c. butter flavor Crisco

1 T. apple cider vinegar

1 egg

½ c. cold water

Mix flour, salt and sugar. Cut in shortening. Mix vinegar, egg and water then slowly pour into flour mixture. Work it into a ball with a fork and your hand. Separate into 4 balls and roll out. Makes 4 pie shells. Enjoy!
