Pondering the Perfect Pie for the Perfect Pi Day

3/14/15 is getting closer, and we're making plans to celebrate. Of course we'll be having pie, but we can't agree on what the best choices are to honor this perfect day. Our question to you was: What kind of Pie do you think is the best to serve on Pi Day?

You answered the call magnificently and the votes are in:

Apple Pie Still King on this Perfect Pi Day!

And while apple seems to be what most of the country will be celebrating with, people's idea of the perfect slice is wonderfully varied. Take a look at the map below to see where your state falls in the great pie debate.

Want to see how to actually make some of these? You're in luck because pie-geek-extraordinaire Martha Stewart dug our survey enough to put together this handy guide!

meaningless icon! I accidentally invented Custard Upside-Down Pie one Pi Day! It's a custard pie baked in a graham cracker crumb crust (NOT pre-baked). During baking, half the custard mixes with the crust, rises to the top, and metamorphoses into something not unlike bread pudding.

meaningless icon! Apple pie should be the obvious choice. That way we can also honor Newton on Pi day.

meaningless icon! Keeping with the geek theme, shouldn't pi day be 3/14/16? (3.14159 rounded.)

meaningless icon! Ugh I want pear pie with maple glazed crust soooo bad right now!
Melissa123465 said this 544 days ago.
meaningless icon! Took some pondering - toooooo many choices yummmmmmm. Sent the old taste-buds into orbit so had to go and raid the fridge - then the biscuit tins. then a quick check in the fridge again!! Cannot stop thinking whether I made the right choice - the torment!!!!!

meaningless icon! Blueberries are known to improve your memory throughout the day. So why not eat blueberry pie on Pi Day! Also, it is delicious and Neptune's favorite pie!
CerberusG said this 544 days ago.
meaningless icon! Blueberry-apple has just the right amount of tang and the right amount of sweet. The perfect blend of berry, apple, and cinnamon goodness. But I'm not talking about the average apple pie here for the second half of the combination, full of weird canned sauce. You've got to make it from scratch with fresh apples. Yup, nothing gets better than that.

meaningless icon! In keeping with the geek theme, I believe pi day should be 3/14/16 (3.14159 rounded.)

meaningless icon! Either Apple or Banana since both have seed disbursement that fall in a Fibonacci sequence

meaningless icon! Don't forgot pizza pie! I recommend Hawaiian, Meat lovers. Anything with bacon really...

meaningless icon! Really guys? Chess is clearly the geekiest pie. And the tastiest.

meaningless icon! Cream pies aren't real pies.
Nemo Sum said this 542 days ago.
meaningless icon! Hmm ... most pies are pretty glorious, but this time around I'd say shepherd's pie for the Year of the Ram!
MissingNo said this 542 days ago.
meaningless icon! How about 3 pies?! One with 3 ingredients (is this even possible?), 14 ingredients & 15 ingredients. (^.^)v

meaningless icon! Best day of the year. My Birthday and Pi day. OMEN>

meaningless icon! Apple pie, thank you Sir Issac Newton.
Orbitmax said this 542 days ago.
meaningless icon! Definitely the Chicago style stuffed pizza pie. I like a lot of the other pies, sure. But pizza will always be my favorite pi.
Kwinkler said this 541 days ago.
meaningless icon! Strawberry-Rhubarb pie from California is the best pie for 22/7 day!!!!!

meaningless icon! Oh, for shame...you missed the perfect opportunity to create...A PIE CHART. Shame, shame. :)
sktakai said this 534 days ago.
meaningless icon! Honestly. This is Pi Day. Do we have to choose just ONE pie? Becuase I could never decide which to vote on. My solution is to eat them all. (&#12389;&#65377;&#9685;&#8255;&#8255;&#9685;&#65377;)&#12389;

meaningless icon! It's not accurate for Aussie's favourite pie to be apple pie if they are the only options... Meat pies would definitely be the winner here!! Mmmmmm.... Pie....
