The Cookie Life of Pi

Posted on April 7th, 2015 in Cookies

This year was a once in a lifetime opportunity to make cookies to celebrate Pi.


Well, Pi = 3.141592 … and so on. An irrational number, but there’s nothing irrational about this post.

A few weeks ago was March 14, 2015.  So on 3-14-15 at 9:26 Math lovers everywhere celebrated Pi and Albert Einstein’s birthday.

When I was in school my favorite subject was Math. I loved it! So,  I was delighted to say “yes” to the request of making cookies to celebrate the special occasion. Here we go..

I love this first cookie. Super Pi to the rescue! Can you see it? I showed the cookie to my husband before writing on it with the black edible marker and he just stared at it. He couldn’t tell what it was. Oh boy! “Did I make a mistake with this design?”, I thought. My husband was just focusing on the gold color, but if you see the red you get it. You do!

This next cookie I also like very much. You need to look close and try to figure it out. I told you about the date (the black cookie). Try to read the blue and the white cookie.

I ate some pie and it was delicious! Yes… it is funny.

Here are a few other designs that I enjoyed making. Pi is infinite, so it was only appropriate to have the symbol somewhere in a design.

I have another fun cookie for you. This is a notebook with fun uses for the word/symbol Pi so you can figure them out.

Whenever I make a platter of cookies I always try incorporate some simple, but pretty cookie. I call them “fillers”. Here are some of those simple cookies, balloons and other assorted mini cookies with Pi references.

Black boards with math teachings, notes and drawings. Black boards because the cookies were for Mathnasium, a math learning center.

One final look of this cookie platter. This was one of the big cookie platters that I offer with over 25 cookies.  This is definitely the only platter I will ever make for such an occasion as we will never be able to celebrate this same event. No tears please…

Happy birthday Albert Einstein and happy Legendary Pi Day.

I believe Mathnasium is a franchise and they would locations all over, but if you are in the Des Moines (West Des Moines) area, follow the link for more information about this amazing learning center.
