Celebrate National Pi(e) Day with these three easy and delicious pie recipes! | read more at happilythehicks.com

Today is one of the best days of the year- National Pi(e) Day. In case you have no clue what I’m talking about, today is March 14th, aka 3-14, which are the first three digits of pi. Yes, it’s a nerdy holiday, but I love it! And, if you’re anything like Mr. Neutron, then you are just as excited about this day as I am.

So to celebrate, today I’m sharing three easy pie recipes with you that you can whip up in a jiffy. While on my Fredericksburg trip, my friends and I brainstormed ideas for the types of pie, and we decided on these three: Chocolate Chip Coconut Pecan Pie, Apple Crumble Pie and Mixed Berry Pie.
If you’re not drooling yet, just wait. ; )

Each of these recipes were made using mini pie pans. The first two recipes used ONE pie dough recipe.The third was made by doubling the pie dough recipe!
These recipes can also be made into a large pie by adding all filling ingredients into a regular pie pan and baking for a longer time.

Easy Pie Dough

Easy Pie Dough

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup white flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (chilled)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3-4 tbsp water

Instructions

  1. Whisk together the whole wheat flour, white flour and salt in a large bowl.
  2. With a pastry blender, cut the coconut oil into the four mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. With a fork, stir in the vinegar. Add the water (1 tbsp at a time) until the dough begins to form.
  4. Press the dough together and shape it into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  5. When you are ready to use the dough, roll out the dough on a floured surface until thin and even.

Notes

*Simply double the recipe if you need a two pie crusts. Divide the dough in half and refrigerate each dough ball separately.
