Happy National Pi(e) Day! Sweetist is here to help you celebrate with some of the best pies in New York City. So without further ado, here’s our list of the best pies for you to shove in your piehole this National Pi Day.
1. Little Pie Company Sour Cream Apple Walnut Pie
While none of the pies from Little Pie Company disappoint, our favorite (and their bestseller) is the Sour Cream Apple Walnut, layers of thinly sliced apple all topped with a crunchy, crumbly brown sugar walnut streusel.
And for the entire week of Pi Day, if you buy a large pie in store, you’ll get a free sugar cookie shaped like the Pi symbol. So what are you waiting for? Go check them out!
(or if you’re too lazy to move, get one delivered here)

2. Four & Twenty Blackbirds Salted Caramel Apple Pie
Four and Twenty Blackbirds offers up a twist on the classic apple pie with their Salted Caramel Apple Pie. This slice features an apple filling with a barely there touch of caramel, topped with a flaky crust studded with coarse salt. Make sure to ask for some of their homemade whipped cream on the side!

3. Petee’s Pie Company Almond Chess Pie
If fruity pies aren’t your thing, Petee’s Pie Company has got you covered. While their cherry crumb and blueberry pies are fantastic, that’s not what you’re here for. No, you’re here for a slice of one of their chess pies, available in almond, chocolate, salty (!) chocolate, lemon poppyseed, and even sesame varieties. Our favorite is the Almond Chess Pie, with a crisp top of layered almonds that gives way to a gooey, buttery custard. Here’s a tip: order it black bottom and get a thin layer of dark chocolate ganache at the bottom.

4. Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies Key Lime Pie (obviously)
Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies takes it back to the basics with a key lime pie made from only five ingredients: fresh key lime, condensed milk, egg yolks, graham crackers, and butter. They don’t sell slices, so order a mini pie or bring some friends and split a whole one (or eat it by yourself, we won’t judge). When it gets warmer out, opt for a Swingle, a chocolate-dipped mini key lime pie served on a stick.

5. Butter & Scotch S’mores Pie
Butter & Scotch’s S’mores Pie definitely lives up to its name. With its sticky scorched marshmallow, smooth chocolate custard, and graham cracker crust, it’s essentially just a giant s’more. Which isn’t a bad thing. If a slice isn’t enough, you can also order any slice of pie as a milkshake, blended with your choice of ice cream.
Spare yourself the trek to Brooklyn and order one here.
