Pi Day!

Today is 3-14!  For those of you who are not mathematicians 3.14 is Pi, a very special number.  To celebrate I made PIE!  Yumm! Yes, this makes me an official geek.

I had a store bought pie crust sitting in my fridge from way back when.  Pie crust is one of the few things that I completely think it is worth just buying.  My go-to use is for making quiche.  Mr. J can only eat so much quiche though so I always end up with just one pie crust left.  I guess that means pie.

I cheated again and used frozen fruit.  I wanted blueberries but after I filled the pie shell it seemed a bit underfilled. I added about a 1/2 cup of raspberries to fill it out.

Make some struesel. 

Top the pie and bake.

It was good.

Very good!

That aboue sums it up!  Happy Pi Day!

20 oz frozen blueberries  or other berry fruit (4 cups)
1/4 cup sugar
