Some Pie for Pi Day!

I was pretty excited about the opportunity to review a Marie Callender’s frozen pie for Pi Day. See, Marie Callender’s and I go way back… the night before I was born my mom ate one of their pot pies. And then my freshman and sophomore years of college I was a waitress in one of their restaurants. I ate a lot of pie during that time.

Jace and I picked out the Dutch Apple Pie—found in the freezer section of your local grocery store—and I was pretty eager to eat it so we baked it as soon as we got home. I was curious how it would compare to a homemade pie.

For the Dutch Apple Pie you have to bake it for about 55 minutes, add the crumb topping, and then bake for another 10 minutes. My house smelled so good while it was baking! And the pie tasted even better than it smelled! Jace was quite the fan of his “apples pie.” I’m pretty picky about my pie crusts, and this one was so good. And the filling and topping were even better. Nolan and I were later talking about how it tasted just as good as, if not better than, the apple pies I have made from scratch. And, in my opinion, not having to peel my own apples was a BIG deal!

I wouldn’t mind picking up another pie to eat on actual Pi Day (March 14)… maybe this time I’ll try a cream pie? You can find the retailers in your area that carry the pie you’re craving by entering your zip code at the bottom of Marie Callender’s website. They also have a blog with party ideas, how to’s and more found HERE.

And just to sweeten things a bit more, they’re offering you a coupon for $1.50 off a Marie Callender’s frozen pie at a national retailer. You can get your coupon HERE and then enjoy your pie for Pi Day!

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your pie!

  1. That sounds so yummy! They have the best pies. My fave are the berry ones. But now you are making me hungry and longing for that smell in my house!
