Pipe cream cheese

Put cream cheese in a pastry bag. Pipe tiny dollops of cream cheese on the Triscuit Thin Crisps, the Chicken in a Biskit crackers and the wavy stick Chex Mix crackers. (You will need to combine two wavy stick Chex Mix crackers to create the top "crust" on each "slice of pie.") Add a dollop of cream cheese on top of each cheese wedge for the "whipped cream."

Man... if I saw mini pumpkin pies, I would assume they were mini pumpkin pies and be disappointed even if it was delicious cheese.

Well I WAS going to bring a boring old cheese plate to my sister's house for Thanksgiving, but this will make me look much fancier and more clever. LOL.
