Happy Pi Day! According to the official Pi Day website:
Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.
Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.
It has become a tradition on Pi Day to eat delicious pies. To celebrate, we’ve gathered some of the yummiest pie recipes from the Six Sisters, a group of LDS sisters who love sharing their recipes and projects with the world. Find your favorite below or share your best recipe in the comments!
