Not that you need a reason to get creative in the kitchen, but Pi Day seems as good an excuse as any. March 14th is a favorite holiday of mathematicians — and gives everyone else a reason to chow down on treats centered around, well, pie. In honor of 3.14, here are some pie-inspired dessert recipes that we’re irrationally excited to make.

Part lollipop, part apple pie — these pops are the perfect on-the-go sweet. A pinch of sea salt makes them a bit more sophisticated for an office party, but feel free to skip it if you’re bringing them into the classroom.
