Are you having a Pi Day party? You know, a gathering where you and your friends sit around eating pie, watching the 1998 American surrealist psychological thriller Pi, and trying to figure out the infinite digits that proceed 3.14592? We thought so.

The best part of Pi Day is, of course, is the edible part—which is why we’ve brought you beauty shots of some of our favorite pies around the country. We love the banana cream pie at The Apple Pan in L.A., the salted caramel apple pie at Four & Twenty Blackbirds in Brooklyn, and the lemon shaker pie form Scratch in Durham, NC. And sometimes, there’s just nothing better than a pie baked in your oven at home, which will inevitably fill up the house with the smell of butter and cooked fruit.

After you’re done looking through the gallery, be sure to get up from your desk, find the closest pie shop to you, and get your dessert on.
