It’s National Pie Day! Not to be confused with Pi Day—that’s on March 14. This is the day you can celebrate your favorite dessert, bakery or pastry chef along with a cup of your favorite coffee or tea. Based on that description, it sounds like a lot of us celebrate Pie Day on a regular basis. Who doesn’t love flakey crusts baked to perfection, filled with your favorite ingredients? Maybe you’re more a fan of delicious crusts with cheese and sauce on top (National Pizza Day is November 12), everyday is Pizza Day. Have you tried a candy apple pie? Or mint julep cream? We almost feel bad for mentioning them, but it’s National Pie Day!
