On March 12, 2009 your lawmakers passed a non-binding resolution (HRES 224) recognizing March 14, 2009 as National Pi Day. It is one of the more legit holidays we discuss here, and it is actually an homage to geeks everywhere who see the date as a reason to celebrate due to its mathematical implications. We say any reason to celebrate anything is just fine by us.
Since we are predominately about food we will suggest a few places to actually enjoy a pi(e) in Dallas.
The pie at Bowl and Barrel is this uber delicious Butterscotch Pie served as the solo dessert at the bowling alley and restaurant.
Another pie that haunts us whenever we drive past the West Village on McKinney is the coconut cream pie from Malai Kitchen. Delicious, but if you feel so inclined we snagged the recipe from owner Yasmin Wage to share with you today. Should you decide to make the pie, make two. Sharing is caring.
Here are a handful of pies we really love:
Coconut we dream of is from Del Frisco Double Eagle
Amberjax Key Lime is sublime
Dive Coastal’s Key Lime Pie with a graham cracker, ginger snap and granola crust
Capital Grille supplies our fix of this marvelous coconut cream pie
Liberty Burger dishes out fine pie
Bisous Bisous on Mckinney offers these beautiful tarts (which qualify)
Any pie will make you sing at the new Beverley’s on Fitzhugh where we spotted former Dean Fearing’s pastry chef Jill Bates.
