Math lovers everywhere commemorate National Pi Day annually on March 14, in recognition of that mathematical constant in our lives.

Why not celebrate Pi day with some of our most patriotic pies?

These red, white and blue pies use fresh berries and whipped cream for a celebratory touch. If your kids are celebrating in school, these pies are a perfect way to observe Pi day home. Grab a piece of pie and see who can recite the most digits in pi. (Hint, it starts like this: 3.1415926535…)

Two different types of cherries, sour cherries and bing cherries, make this pie extra delicious. A crunchy nutmeg-spiked streusel gets sprinkled on top of the cherry filling and then garnished with confectioner's sugar.

The bottom of this pie is layered with vanilla wafers and covered with banana pudding. Banana slices and whipped cream topping make the pie taste better than our favorite banana split.
