Orangesicle Mascarpone Pie with Sweet Biscuit Crust
A thoughtful pie for an irrational number.
Just in time for Pi Day, I thought I would whip up a simple pie recipe in celebration of this glorious irrational number. I would say you could slice the pie to share, but there is not way to put it into a fraction. Mathematicians appreciate this kind of humor.
In high school, I really wanted to excel in mathematics and I think I could have. I had this perception that I would never be good at it because it didn’t come particularly easy for me. I boxed myself in this way and it became a self-fulfilling prophecy. I made up my mind I wasn’t going to excel therefore I didn’t.
I am not the only one. I know people who put themselves in a box and say things like, “I am not creative.” This is the same affliction in a more abstract form. I think we need to end the misery of stuffing ourselves into these limiting boxes by breaking free. And while you stew over the things you have always told yourself you are no good at, make this fairly simple orangsicle mascarpone pie.
