Pi Pie Pans, the Pi shaped pie pan, were made for those people who have a love of apple, cherry and the irrational as well. If you can recite Pi from memory to 20 or more decimal places, you need the Pi Pie Pan to celebrate March 14th in style. Be the envy of the office or classroom on Pi Day with this Pi shaped pan that has the same volume as a typical 9" pie pan.
Celebrate birthdays, holidays and Pi Day as only a true math geek would, by baking a pie in a Pi pie shaped pan. There have been Pi cake pans, but what is the point of making a cake for Pi Day? There is only one way to get a Pi shaped pie, and that is with the Pi Pie Pan. The pans are anodized 3003-alloy aluminum, which is the one of the most common aluminum alloys for cookware. The Pi Pie Pans are anodized for a stronger surface, but they aren't non-stick. Pie crusts (both pastry and crumb type) generally have enough fat in them that sticking isn't a problem, but it wouldn't hurt to grease the pan. The volume is equivalent to a 9" pie pan and designed so you can use a standard filling recipe. However, this pan has a larger outside surface area than a round pan; for a crumb style crust (Graham cracker, Oreo, etc.) you need to increase the recipe by about 25%. For a pastry crust you can increase the recipe if you want, or just roll the dough a bit thinner. When using store bought pie dough my partner, just roll it to an oval shape 3-4 inches wider in one direction to help fit the pan. Pi Pie Pans were brought to life as a Kickstarter project - we are now happy to make these pans available to the general public!
