Have a Happy Pi(e) Day Sunday!

Front cover of Baking in the HomeSunday, March 14 (3.14) is Pi Day! Traditionally, it’s celebrated with pie, and we’d encourage you to buy or bake your favorite flavor.

Believe it or not, we found pie recipes in our collection of government documents. Baking in the Home is a USDA Farmer’s Bulletin from 1920. It includes a basic pie crust recipe, since you wouldn’t have likely found ready-made back then. If you’re up for baking, you can try the recipes for apple, chocolate cream, sweet-potato, and squash pies.

Have leftover pastry? Make pastry crisps, roly-poly, cheese straws, or pastry shells.

Government documents at the Wyoming State Library hold an amazing amount of historical detail for research — search our catalog to find more. Questions on state or federal information? Contact our trained reference staff at statelibrary@wyo.gov or (307) 777-6333.
