Have a piece of pie for National Pi Day

Pie for National Pi Day

Today is National Pi Day, celebrating the mathematical constant 'pi' or approximately 3.14. If you're a math geek, today probably means doodling the symbol in your notebooks or playing around with the irrational number. For foodies -- or anyone with a sweet tooth -- the similarity in pronunciation to a beloved dessert can mean only one thing: an excuse to eat pie.

Savory pies, sweet pies, any kind of pie will do to aid in the celebration. Here are a couple of recipes for a variety of pies from our Los Angeles Times test kitchen:

Momofuku's crack pie

Blackberry pie

Key lime pie

Pecan pie

Apple pie

Chicken leek and fennel pot pie

Crawfish spinach pie
