Happy Pi Day - 3-14

Pi Day is an annual celebration of the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is observed on March 14 (3/14 in the month/day date format) since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of π.

Ah, who really cares about all that math stuff ..... we would much rather eat PIE!!!

This is one of our favorite pie recipes -  enjoy!

Apple Pie in a Brown Bag

1 paper grocery bag
1 deep dish frozen pie crust
4 cups sliced apples
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup margarine, softened
1/2 cup sugar

Filling: Combine sugar, flour, nutmeg and cinnamon.  Toss lightly with sliced apples. Let sit 10 minutes for sugar mixture to melt onto the apples and then pour into the unbaked pie shell.

Topping: Combine flour, butter, and sugar.  Mix together with fingers or a fork, until crumbly.  Sprinkle over pie. You'll want to bake soon before the butter mixture softens too much.

Place pie in brown paper bag and staple shut.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.

Remove from oven and slit bag with sharp knife.  Cool pie on a cooling rack. 

Serve warm with a scoop (or 2) of vanilla ice cream.
