Today is Pi Day, the day that celebrates the symbol used in math to represent 3.14159..., or the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. You know what circle-shaped thing we really like on 3/14? PIE!

We poked around and found quite a few places around Wicked Local world that make homemade pie. You may still be digging out from this week's storm and too busy to venture out for a delicious dessert, but bookmark this page and be sure to use the map as a guide to crust-and-filling nirvana. Many are close enough together that you can try pie from several places in the same day! Enjoy.
Want to make your own pie? We like the recipe for pecan pie on the Karo corn syrup bottle. Consider some personal tweaks, such as using brown sugar instead of white sugar, or adding maple extract. Baking is usually a science, but there's often room to improvise.
