It’s one of the best days of March…of the year, really. It’s Pi Day! Oh yeah, oh yeah. Choosing a perfect dessert to celebrate the occasion is a task that should be fun but ends up being way too involved. As usual, I overthought it. I had a list of possibilities jostling around my mind, but when I listed them for Ben he just laughed and said, “Really? Cookie dough, obviously!” He’s a smart man.
I used components from recipes I already know and love and converted them to a pie form. The “crust” is really just a big chocolate chip cookie. The pie “filling” is the same eggless cookie dough featured in the ever popular cookie dough cupcakes and cookie dough truffles. I topped this of with a bit of whipped cream for a sort of “cookies and milk” flavor, but of course a big glass of milk is still required. This pie is pretty rich so a small slice will do just fine, which your friends will appreciate – more to share with others!
(As always, a big shout out to my amazing high school calculus teacher Mr. Strawn who made all things pi, calculus, and math in general far more fun and understandable than ever before or ever again.)
