Mini Choco Caramel Pi Pies

Happy Pi Day! Pi day is being celebrated today across the world at 1:59:26, or anytime today really. It is Pi Day because it is March 14th or 3/14, the first three digits of Pi (the next five are 15926 in case you didn't guess). I like to make at least one pie for this occasion every year, but I also like to go even further and make Pi pie. Pi pie is any flavor pie that includes the pie symbol somewhere on it - it could be in the form of a cut-out in the crust, an extra piece of dough, a sprinkle of icing sugar, or a drizzle of icing or chocolate. Here are some delicious mini pies I made to celebrate  One little two bite pie has the goodness of chocolate and caramel in a neat handheld package. These mini pies begin with the cream cheese crust I featured yesterday. they are filled with a dollop of caramel filling, followed by a heaping dollop of chocolate filling. I topped them with a little vanilla buttercream in the shape of pi symbols. Here is the process:

The cream cheese pie shells.
Followed by the caramel filling.
Topped off with the chocolate filling.
And finished off with vanilla buttercream pi symbols.
Happy Pi Day!!!
