As if you really needed an excuse to make pie, March 14 is Pi Day. As such, we’ve gathered 3.14 of our favorite pie recipes . . . kidding! Here are a dozen — six sweet, six savory — that have precisely and mathematically been chosen from our Recipe Finder to guarantee delicious results.
You-Got-Peanut-Butter-in-My-Chocolate Tart. Peanut butter and chocolate are never out of season.
Dorie Greenspan’s Blueberry Pie. We love this recipe’s crust technique: After a quick buzz in the food processor, it’s immediately rolled between sheets of parchment or wax paper before being chilled.
Patti LaBelle’s Sweet Potato Pie. The one of 2015 viral YouTube video fame.
Gluten-Free Key Lime Pie. The crust is a keeper; it might seem soft at first, but after the pie’s overnight refrigeration, it firms up nicely.
That Cream Cheese Cool Whip Pie. A no-bake, festive retro treat.
Shaker Lemon Pie. Sweet, sour and slightly bitter, this one uses whole lemons.
Braised Tuna Pastilla. A kosher take on the classic Moroccan phyllo pie.
Curry Onion Tart. This eggy dish has flavors of Southern India.
Mushroom Popover Pie, above left. A cross between clafoutis and popover.
Spinach and Walnut Tarts, above right. Crispy, lightly spiced and perfect for a first course or party snack.
Roasted Potato Phyllo Pies. From Washington’s own Kapnos restaurant.
Pizza Genovese. Pi, multiplied: This pizza’s topped with rounds of sliced red potatoes.
