March 14 is Pi Day, a day to celebrate the mathematical constant 3.14 and eat lots of pie. OK, who are we kidding? It is just an excuse to eat lots of pie. No matter how you slice it, the Windy City does not disappoint in this category. From traditional dessert pies to famous pizza pies and everything in between, here are the best of the best.
Oh My! Caramel Pie from Beatrix
A caramel lover’s dream pie, this scrumptious dessert combines the perfect buttery shortbread crust with a creamy, rich interior that’s made with real caramel. Served with a side of vanilla bean whipped cream for dipping (or just for eating alone), with one bite, you’ll see why the dessert is to die for.
