happy pi day!

3.14 isn't just the date today, it's a day to remember a never-ending number, pi.  in our household we don't let this special number and day pass us by without any recognition.  so to celebrate this most sacred day i made a peach pie!  pie can be such a labor of love or frustration, especially when it comes to pie crust.  my friend, mer, gave me this pie crust recipe and it has become the apple of my pie.  ah, sometimes i crack myself up...and only myself.  anyway, this recipe is the easiest, flakiest and yummiest i have found yet!

mer's easy pie crust:
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
mix all ingredients in bowl or pie pan.

yep, that's really it!  i make mine in the pie pan so i have less dishes.  any pie i make i always top with my mom's famous topping...also easy.  ready?  i actually don't have a recipe.  i just mix sugar, flour and butter until it looks right.  right meaning crumbly and tastes good.  i am america's-test-kitchen-precise i know.  this topping really makes the pie though. 

so what's your favorite pie?  or use of pi...no don't reply to that.  i wouldn't even understand.  let's just stick to pie.
