The first entries in the ScienceBlogs/Serious Eats 2010 Pi Day Pie Bake-Off are starting to roll in, and it already looks like its going to be difficult to choose come voting day. We probably shouldn't be writing this post at lunchtime, but here we go anyway with the first three pies:
First, from Annie Wang at frites & fries, the ingeniously titled Archi-meaty pie. Because Archimedes was Greek, the pie itself had to be Greek too, made with lamb, feta, honey, apples and raisins.
Next up is Leigh's Rabbiteye Blueberry Pie, originally posted on her blog 5 Acres & A Dream. Freshly picked blueberries don't need much dressing up, and Leigh's no-fail pie crust recipe makes them shine (or she claims...you be the judge).
And last but not least, Stephanie from 52 Kitchen Adventures sent us her "Grown-Up" S'mores Pie with Guiness. Just like the fireside version, the pie is made with graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate—plus the beer that puts it squarely in the "for adults" category.
If you think you can beat any (or all) of these pies, check out the 20210 Pi Day Pie Bake-Off page for more details about the contest, and make sure send us your pie by the end of Sunday, March 14! And check back here after that to vote for your favorite pie.
