With National Pi Day right around the corner it’s only appropriate to celebrate by eating a whole pie to yourself, without any guilt on March 14th. While Pi Day Mason Jar Berry Pies are the focus of this post (recipe below!) the reason we celebrate Pi day is because Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant. It represents the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter which is 3.14159. The folks at Piday.org report that this number 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.” Cool!
Now for the part about eating an entire pie…. these little mason-jar pies are made of whole food ingredients that, when combined, make the perfect little individual pie. The use of miniature mason jars gives this recipe a rustic twist that sets it apart from traditional pies. Celebrate #PiDay2017 with these sweet little Mason Jar Berry Pies #Pie Click To Tweet
These little Mason Jar Berry Pies are filled with antioxidants in the form of whole cherries and blueberries and are sweetened with only a touch of honey. The crust is savory, made with non-dairy butter so these are vegan-friendly. This pie is no joke; it’s delicious, fun to eat and packed with health benefits.
