Pi Day! {no recipe}

So I've been super excited for this day to come since last Pi Day. It came and went last year and I didn't even have the chance to make any. Thankfully, I was a bit more organized this year and decided to make pies to give to Timmy to take to his work buddies so they could enjoy them {I kept half of each here of course}. I was given many ideas for different flavors but I decided that I wanted to make an apple and key lime pie. I haven't made an apple since my practical in my first semester bakeshop class. I honestly loved making the apple, it's one of my favorite pies now! I added golden raisins that were soaked in a mixture of vodka and rum... mmm. I also added a "pi" symbol as the vent in the pie, see... I'm a  nerd too! And the key lime is one that I've been wanting to explore. In Florida the key lime is very popular since there were key lime trees in areas that we used to vacation, like Sanibel and Captiva Island. Also, my grandparents and mom would always make them and I just miss the flavor. I jazzed it up by decorating it with some creme chantilly, candied lime slices and toasted coconut!
