Pi is defined as the distance around a perfect circle, or the circumference, divided by the distance across it, or the diameter. It is also involved in calculating the area of a circle, the volume of a sphere, and many other mathematical formulas you might need in the sciences. Or not. And it goes on forever, starting with 3.14 (get it, March 14?).
Celebrate Pi with pie!
Our Director of Education wanted to share her chocolate pie recipe for the occasion:
2 squares semi-sweet baking chocolate
1 stick butter
1 scant cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla
Melt chocolate and butter in double boiler, take off heat and stir in sugar. Stir in beaten eggs, then vanilla and salt. Pour into graham cracker crust and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Top with a dollop of whipped cream for that Albert Einstein look (because it’s his birthday, too)!
