Pi Day Celebration

Today at work we had a celebration of Pi Day!  We had 9 pies and a plate of brownies!  Everything was delicious, and we had plenty of leftovers.  It seemed to make our weekly department meeting a little more fun!

Pie Filling

  • In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in cream until blended.   The mixture will be runny.  Don’t worry, it will thicken up.
  • Fold in whipped topping and 1 cup toffee bits.
  • Spoon into crust; sprinkle with remaining toffee bits. Cover and freeze overnight.
  • Remove from the freezer 10 minutes before serving.  Optional: Drizzle with chocolate syrup before serving.
  • Yield: 6-8 servings.

Toffee could be substituted for a variety of candy – Snickers, Milkyway, Butterfinger, etc.
