I had lots of pie-filling leftover from Pi-Day, so I made some hand pies.
Killing two birds with one stone, I made Shepard’s Pie that commemorates both St. Patrick’s Day (Mar-17) and Pi-Day (Mar-14). To quote two very wise men, “BRILLIANT!”
I used Alton Brown’s Recipe and the house smelled heavenly all evening. I did cheat and use boxed mashed potatoes. Don’t tell the potato police.
I made some of Pioneer Woman’s perfect pie crust [Recipe] and had 5 fillings:
- Mango [Recipe]
- Apple [Recipe]
- Blueberry [Recipe]
- Strawberry [Recipe]
- Chocolate: I just poured some chocolate ganache into the a pre-baked crust
These are going in my husbands lunch tomorrow. I also made him a 22/7 napkin to go with his pi-pies.
These pi-pies are dedicated to my favorite math teacher in the world, to whom I probably owe my career and my wonderful life.
