π: Texas Master Naturalists Celebrate Pi (Pie?) Night

Our Texas Master Naturalist group decided to celebrate Pi Day with a Pi (Pie?) Night.

There was to be a pi trivia contest, with prizes for the trivia winners, we were told, and pies were requested.

Master Naturalists went all out. 

Surprisingly, there was no duplication of pies. All my favorites were there. Lemon. Pecan. Cherry. Blueberry. Some were new to me, including a Snickers Pie.

I tried them all.

This one was beautiful. I wonder how this one was made. A stencil, maybe?

I'm a pie baker from a long line of pie bakers. I couldn't resist making a pie of my own.

Here's mine. Yes, I'm proud of it. Blueberry Pie. And the recipe is from this 1965 Farm Journal's Complete Pie Cookbook, though I chose to use my favorite butter crust since I didn't have the recommended lard for the recipe's crust.

And I can't resist sharing some other photos of my pies:

Do you like pie? Or pi?
