S’mores Pie with Graham Cracker Crust

Today is Pi Day. 

No, not a misspelling. I mean, Pi: the ratio of a circles circumference to its diameter. 3.14159265359 🙂 

My 10th grade math teacher, Mrs. Garrity would be proud 😛

Today is March 14, (3/14) also known as Pi Day! And really it is just an excuse to eat pie in March. Because most people wouldn’t be eating a pie today. The holidays have passed and the yummy fruit that fill the summer pies are not yet in season.

I wanted to make a pie with what I had (this seems to be a trend). I had graham crackers and chocolate and I decided it would be best to go simple since it was close to midnight!!
