Pie for a Pi

Mathematicians, among others, observe Pi Day today due to Pi being 3.14 (or extended as, 3.1415926535...) or otherwise, as March 14. While you could commemorate the occasion with some clever calculations, I might suggest another formula. Check out some pie titles from Steenbock’s cookbook collection!
