I was excited to hear about Wholly Wholesome and the products that offer and to be honest I was excited about an excuse to bake a pie! I love pie, probably more than cake. So why would Wholly Wholesome celebrate Pi π day? They of course want you on 3.14 π to pick out your favorite filling and make a pi π to celebrate.
Wholly Wholesome has frozen pie crust that are organic, all natural and they offer three different varieties, whole wheat, spelt, and traditional. I was excited to try a healthier version of frozen pie shells. You can use their fabulous graham and chocolate crusts as well.
I decided to make a Pumpkin Pi π because it is a favorite around here, my oldest son even requests one for his birthday instead of cake. Pies have always been my Thanksgiving contribution, I am so excited that I can use these pie crusts now. I am always on the look out for healthier options, little things mean a lot to your health when they all add up.
Now, there are so many ways to celebrate Pi π Day, I guess we could have dressed up as pies, or maybe gone out for pie, we could have made a pizza pie or even a savory pie. Wholly Wholesome even has Pizza Crusts available for you to make your pizza pie. For us it was easy,the pumpkin pi π, using my mom’s recipe from years of Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations was going to make it perfect.
My family found this crust to be flaky light and great tasting. It does not have any junk ingredients like other frozen pie crusts either
