Do you know today’s date?!
Do you know what this means?!?!?!?!?!
Those are the first five digits of the mathematical constant pi! This is the one year that the date will be more that just the first three digits!!!!!!
Woah. I know. It’s a big deal.
So I made a pie to celebrate, an Apple, Craisin, Pecan, and Candied Ginger Pie.Here’s what ya need:
1 humongous Honeycrisp apple, cubed (it was a HUGE apple, once cored and cubed it probably was at least 2 cups worth)
1 cup craisins
1 cup candied ginger, chopped
1 cup pecans, chopped
6 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Poudre Douce (or pie spice if ya don’t have that, or here’s a shameless plug, click here to buy some)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg and 2 egg yolks
pie crust for 9″ pie dish: this is up to you, if you make a wicked pie crust, please do so (and feel free to send me some tips and a recipe because I just bought some ready-to-go pie crust…).
Preheat oven to 350 F, set rack in center of oven.
Place apple, craisins, ginger, and pecans in a bowl.
Add sugars, Poudre Douce, salt, and egg. Stir until combined.
Pour this combination into your prepared crust. The verbose top crust is optional, I just love spelling things out with food. If you really want to achieve greatness you should see how many digits of pi you can fit on top of your pie.
Bake for 30 minutes. Take pie out and cover with aluminum foil and bake for another 30 minutes. With cover still on let cool for 20 minutes and serve!!!!
