S’mores Pie for Pi Day (and holy crap, I remembered Pi day!)

This blog has been in existence for six Pi days (3/14, for those of you not in the know) now. And every single year in maybe January, I tell myself, “Oh yeah, I should make a pie to post on Pi day this year!” And then every single year on March 14th, I’m scrolling through my reader going, “Oh, crap. I forgot about Pi day. Again.”

This past weekend, I actually remembered – in time! And on a weekend! Score. I couldn’t really decide what type of pie to make, though. I didn’t want to spend a whole lot of time because at 39 weeks pregnant, doing anything for long periods of time is not my specialty. I also didn’t really want to do a fruit pie since we’re sort of in between seasons when it comes to finding good fruit. I debated a coconut pie, but eventually settled on this s’mores pie – because I love s’mores and because it seemed really easy.

This pie is definitely easy. There’s a graham cracker crust, so there’s no cutting butter or rolling or anything associated with traditional pastry crusts. The chocolate filling really could not be any simpler to make, and then the whole thing is topped with marshmallows. The only problem I had with this was that my broiler completely stopped working after about 3 seconds. And then it took for.ev.er. to start working again (although I guess I should be glad it didn’t die on me altogether). Of course, I got one side nice and golden brown and then turned the pan and overdid the other side a wee bit. Oopsie. Oh well, it was still delicious even if not beautiful.

 

This pie is great. The ganache-like filling is smooth and silky and goes really well with a graham cracker crust. The marshmallows complete the pie (and I’m sure you could use fluff or a homemade marshmallow topping of sorts, if you would prefer to do that instead). I preferred heating a slice of pie for about 8-10 seconds before eating it, to re-gooify the marshmallows.

Happy Pi Day!
