Lazy Tuesday Recipe #2: The Pi Pie
Now, I know I'm a week and a half late with this, but...well, is there really an inappropriate time for pie? Especially Pi pie? Didn't think so. LET'S DO THIS.
As you can tell from the title of this particular recipe, this is so easy that even a monkey with no knowledge of Pi and its infinitesimal decimal points could do it. So unless Bobo is reading from a laboratory computer, everyone reading this can make this delectable dessert.
What you'll need:
- 1 can of your favourite pie filling (Hey. It's a lazy recipe.)
- 1 package of ready-to-bake pie crust (DON'T JUDGE ME. JUST DO IT.)
- 1 large pie plate (Disposable for easy clean up. See? Lazy Tuesday.)
- 1 Pi symbol stencil
- 1 paring knife
- 1 spatula
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 400°f. Roll out the first circle and line the pie plate, pushing it down gently to touch the edge of the bottom and the sides. Leave the excess to hang off the side for the moment.
Step 2: Empty your pie filling into the bowl of pie crust and even it out with a spatula.
Step 4: Cut around the stencil with a paring knife. This is where using a store bought crust comes in handy, since it's relatively easy to mould.
Step 5: Delicately peel the crust off your counter and place it equally as delicately onto the top of your pie, and pinch together the bottom and top, peeling off the excess in the process. (Tip: use the edge of the pie plate as a guide and simply break off the excess along the edge.)
Step 6: Place your pie in the middle of your middle rack and bake for 40 minutes. Once the timer goes off, retrieve your mathematically delicious treat.
Special thanks to my boyfriend for the stencil.
