Pie Crust Recipe

It’s almost Pi Day guys! Pi Day is one of the most exciting events at our house. Thanks to Pi, we get to enjoy the benefits of math through circles and more importantly… food in the shape of circles (aka pie). As a home-school family you need to know that we are learning nerds, and math is delicious! So, grab your favorite pie filling and pie crust recipe, and get in the kitchen!

This year for Pi Day Michael and I are sharing our excitement with coworkers. Michael went one step further and demanded a Pi Day celebration at work. His demands were accepted and approved. It’s now official and on the schedule. With Pi Day being this Saturday they decided to celebrate today instead. Of course, without hesitation I made a mess of the kitchen and out came a beautiful apple pie. I also made mini spaghetti pies that sadly couldn’t be photographed. It breaks my heart because they came out so neat! Oh well, I’m sure they’ll make their way to Bread & With It another time.

If you have a blog, please submit your Pi or Pie themed articles to Bread & With It for the Ultimate Pie day!

This Saturday is the big day. It’s Pi Day, yes, but a college friend of mine is getting married that day too. She’s a gamer and a bit of a nerd, in a super awesome way. Her and her gamer fiancĂ© are getting married and it’s pretty exciting. If you are wondering, there will be pie. Rest assured! They will have cake as the main dessert with all the cake cutting traditions, but pie will also be available.

I will be at a Pi Day wedding, and I will be photographing the event. What an honor. I always feel incredibly honored when I’m invited to someone’s special day and on top of that I am incredibly honored when they ask me to photograph it. It puts me in a good mood, but it’s also a little stressful. Photographing weddings for friends means that you absolutely cannot screw it up… you can… but just don’t.

Hopefully I will have some beautiful shots that I can share with you next week or the week after. Once I’ve had some time to process them. I always enjoy sharing some of my newest creations, and maybe you will draw some inspiration. Who knows!

I hope you guys enjoy this pie recipe. I’m a little jealous that this pie crust recipe in the photograph is the one going to Michael’s work. It filled the house with such a pleasing aroma. It was difficult for me to not eat it and leave Micheal high and dry with only my puppy dog eyes as an apology. Yum.

  1. 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 3/4 teaspoon salt
  3. 2/3 cup shortening
  4. 8 to 10 tablespoons ice cold water
  1. Stir together flour and salt in a medium size bowl. Cut in shortening using a pastry blender.
  2. Sprinkle water into the flour mixture, one tablespoon at a time. After each addition, use a fork to push moistened dough away from the center.
  3. Once dough is moistened, divide in half. Form dough into a ball. Using a rolling pin, roll out dough pushing from center to the outer edges until it is a little larger than the size needed for your pie (approx 12 inches).
  4. Wrap pastry around a rolling pin or fold into quarters and carefully lay in pie dish. Without stretching the dough ease it into place. If using the top pastry, add the filling and roll out topper over top of filling. Trim pastry to the edges of the plate using a butter knife. Pinch edges with a fork.
  5. Cook according to pie recipe directions.
