It’s March 14 and you know what that means, friends…it’s Pi Day! Other than Earth Day, this is probably my favorite holiday (if you call it that) to celebrate on the blog. This year, I opted for a tropical vibe with this lovely mango pie. The filling is smooth, light, and not overly sweet. Paired with a simple graham cracker crust, this vibrant yellow stunner is a refreshing treat for both the eyes and the palate.
The crust is enhanced by the addition of cardamom and I loved this flavor pairing. However, there is a lot of room to play here! I think lime zest or toasted unsweetened coconut would also be excellent ways to riff on the crust. I love the filling as is, but I think it could also be incredible topped with fresh raspberries just before serving.
What are you making for Pi Day? Let me know in the comments. I can’t wait to hear all about your creations!
