How to make those fancy geometric pies by lokokitchen

Seattle-based self-taught baker Lauren Ko of Loko Kitchen was inspired to start making her now-viral geometric pies after seeing some cool ones on Pinterest.

For Pi Day, Tasty posted this video of Ko telling her story while showing us step-by-step how she does her thing. It's so satisfying to watch, esp. that sped-up crust-weaving part.

Be sure to follow her pie-making adventures on Instagram. Since she started it in August 2017, she's gained over 150K followers, including Martha Stewart.

Here's a taste:

Friend or foetato? 🥔| Spud redux of my pear tart with red, purple, New, and sweet potatoes (all hand-sliced because I’m a masochist and I still can’t decide on a mandolin) and melty Raclette. Carbz and cheese: the lifespud of Mondays, amirite? 🧀

Dressed to the lines. 〰️| How else does one mow through @costco quantities of butter, flour, and sweet potatoes but with pie? Last week, I was scrounging the pantry. This week, I’m clearing house. #notsponsored, just anti-hoarding

What’s love quat to do with it? 🍊| Chocolate tart with chocolate glaze from @epicurious tiled with tangy kumquats. With Valentine’s approaching, consider this one luxuriant way to help you say “Kumquat may, I’ll love you to my pieing day.” (Even if it’s to yourself because let’s be real, you deserve every last crumbquat.)
