Remember PI from math class? That鈥檚 right, the neverending number (3.14159265359鈥) is celebrated every March 14 (that鈥檚 3.14 鈥 get it?), and it鈥檚 celebrated with 鈥 you guessed it 鈥 pie! And although the simple act of enjoying this decadent dessert seems easy enough, as the big day approaches, we鈥檙e left with a conundrum: What kind of pie is best to honor such a sacred day? There are the tried-and-true apple and cherry pies, winter holiday favorites like pumpkin or pecan pie and even savory pot pie recipes. But those don鈥檛 do much justice to the wonderfully seasonal ingredients that are filling our farmers markets this spring. March is the start of spring, after all. This Pi Day, skip the bakery run and the grueling lines, and opt to bake (or no-bake) your pie at home. Scroll through these 17 spring pies, and find the perfect pie to celebrate, debatably, the *best* holiday of the year.
