I love any excuse to party, even if it's just a silly made up holiday. March 14th is also known as Pi Day. Get it? 3.14? Haha. A little nerdy math humor. But you know what, it's the perfect reason to make life a little more fun and throw a Pi Party!
Today I'm sharing a delicious Strawberry 7UP Pie recipe and a tutorial for how to create a tissue paper fringe pi pie topper.
Doesn't the pie look so yummy? It's quick to make, but it tastes so fresh and sweet!
The secret ingredient of 7UP® adds a subtle citrus tang that takes this strawberry pie to the next level!
I found all of the ingredients needed for the pie and the craft supplies at Walmart. I bought a 12 pack of 7UP so that I could use some for the pie recipe and the rest to serve as drinks at our little shindig.
7UP Strawberry Pie3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
10 oz. 7UP (almost one full can)
1 (3 ounce) box strawberry gelatin
1 pound fresh strawberries, rinsed, sliced and drained
1 pie crust
Begin by baking the pie crust until golden brown.
Pour sugar, salt and cornstarch into a medium saucepan. Whisk together. Add 7UP, then turn on the heat and stir until the mixture begins to thicken. Remove from stove and add gelatin. Whisk until the gelatin is dissolved, then cool the mixture completely.
When pie shell is cool, add cut strawberries, then pour the glaze over the top. Refrigerate for 2 hours, or until pie is firm and chilled. Serve with whipped cream.
I'm in love with the idea of a Pi pie topper. I mean, even the name is fun to say! Pi pie topper.
To make your own, reverse image print a Pi symbol onto a piece of cardstock. Double check that you reverse it before printing!
Cut enough strips of tissue paper fringe to cover the Pi symbol.
Turn the cardstock over and cover the Pi symbol with glue.
Start at the bottom and layer the fringe over the entire design.
Then flip the cardstock back over and cut around the lines of the Pi symbol. This is why we flipped the design before printing. Then it's easy to cut from the back side!
The last step is to add toothpicks to the bottom so you can insert it into the pie.
