**This giveaway has ended**
Today is National Pi Day and while math really doesn’t do much for me, pi(e) certainly does. Because of my “A Year of Pie” series, a few weeks ago my friends at Target asked if I wanted to team up with them to create a pie for National Pi Day. Of course my response was a resounding YES! Target + Pie = Amazing. Now that’s some math I can handle.
Last fall I joined Target’s Inner Circle, and it’s been a match made in heaven. This past November I went to their first Holiday House in NYC. More recently, I got the chance to talk to Nate Berkus and I may have another exciting adventure in the very near future. Whatever happens, I’m so thankful to Target and thrilled that I can share all of the ideas, recipes, and experiences with all of you.
Now back to the pie.
When I started my “A Year of Pie” series, Joe (who works for Target) commented on the post and told me that he uses food coloring to paint designs on his pie crusts. What a brilliant idea, right? Think of the possibilities!
So when I was challenged to make this pie, there was basically only one way to go about it: a bullseye.
There’s no denying who this pie is for.
To create the design, I just used a clean, new artist’s paintbrush and some watered down gel food color. It was that easy. However, most of you won’t be painting a bullseye on your pie, so you could do a picture of the fruit inside the pie or a celebratory message. The options are endless!
The inside of the pie is double cherry. A combination of frozen cherries and dried cherries. Served with a scoop of ice cream, it’s to die for! It tastes like a slice of sweet summer. You’re going to love it!
And to help you celebrate National Pi Day, and recreate this recipe at home, my friends at Target are giving one lucky IBC reader a $100 Target Gift Card! Gotta love that!
