6. Place the additional pie crust on a cutting board and cut into long strips.

7. Take those strips and cover apples, weave in a lattice design.

8. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off.

Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. It’s a constant number, so no matter how small or large your circle is, Pi will always be the same! Pi is a never-ending number, and it continues without repetition or pattern. It’s approximately 3.14159265359. Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th in classrooms across the country. Make a “pi” day pie by adding the symbol to the center of the crust. You can do this by either drawing it on with a topping of your choice or cutting it out of the dough.

You can find Wholly Wholesome products near you at United Markets, Supermarkets and Eat Rite.
