Today we celebrate 3.14159265 with chocolate peanut butter pie!
uh, Pi Day.
Longtime readers know, I celebrate Pi Day every year.
First – I used to be an accountant and I love numbers – shocking third grade me who loathed math!
Second – pie. and actually, pie might be first.
This Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie is a recipe I first made several years back. We enjoyed this at a holiday party, and I never even took photos.
This pie is really like a truffle – so decadent and rich – that a small sliver of a slice is all you need. This time I made the recipe as is and filled two smaller pie tins – these are my six inch pie tins:
The small triangles of pie are cute as heck.
Happy Pi Day!
