Today is the one day of the year when bakers, mathematicians and dessert fiends can all gather together for one homonymous celebration: pi day. That's right, today, 3/14, is a chance to nod in thanks to 3.14159265358979323846264... with a good old slice of actual, scrumptious, fruit (or cream or chocolatey or meringue-topped) pie. So in celebration of the crust-encased favorite, we wonder: what's your favorite kind of pie?
