I had the privilege this morning to appear on FOX45 to chat about Pi Day, which is March 14th!! Pi Day is celebrated on March 14 because the date coincides with the first three digits of pi: 3.14. Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. So since Pi is constant, it is the same for every circle, no matter the size! This morning I shared fun ways to celebrate Pi Day, including a yummy treat! I love the idea of creating little “pi” pops to enjoy on Pi Day! So what better filling than to use than one of my son’s favorites… Nutella!! Plus I used our favorite pie dough, Wholly Wholesome!
1 Wholly Wholesome Traditional Organic Pie Dough
1 small jar Nutella
milk for brushing
chocolate decorating icing
First you’ll wan to preheat the oven to 375F. Next on a lightly floured surface, roll the pastry dough out 1/4″ thick. Then cut the dough into 2″-3″ rounds with a cookie cutter or glass rim. Brush the edge with beaten egg.Place a lollipop stick on the edge, overlapping the pastry by about 1/2″, and place a spoonful of Nutella in the middle of the pastry circle. Brush the edge lightly with milk or cream.Then place the second circle on top, and press the edges with a fork to seal. Place the pops onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, brush with a little more milk or cream. Bake the pops for 20-25 minutes, or until golden. Let them cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. Once they are done cooling, make sure to draw on a pi symbol with icing! I just used chocolate frosting to add the pi signs to my pie pops.
What type of pie pops would you like to create?
