Happy Pi Day! I know, I know. I’m a nerd, but in my defense, when I greeted my family with “Happy Pi Day!” my dad said, “Next year will really be Pi Day” (3.1415) haha. I’m surrounded by nerds! Luckily, they also love pies. I’ve had this pie on my list to make for months, and it was all I had hoped it would be! It will remind you of a cross between pecan pie and toll house pie….delicious! It doesn’t taste like almond joy candy bars exactly, but it does have all the same flavors – almonds, chocolate, and coconut. It was a hit with everyone and I’ll definitely be making it again! Make a pie to celebrate Pi Day today! Enjoy!
