These mini dutch apple pies are a fantastic way to enjoy Pi day.  Arrange them in the shape of the Pi symbol and celebrate the most amazing mathematical constant ever discovered!  The crust on these mini pies is firm and sweet, making for perfect crusts that don't collapse or get too soft to manage with your hands, even after being sealed in an air-tight container.  The filling is the perfect blend of sweetness and tartness.
