step-by-step
instructions
Bake the pie shells
1 Bake the pie shells

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 375°F. Place the pie crusts on a sheet pan, leaving them in their tins. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Transfer to a cooling rack and let stand about 10 minutes, or until room temperature.

2 Make the filling & set the pies

Once the pie crusts have cooled about 5 minutes, in a bowl, combine the chocolate chips, a pinch of salt, and 2 tablespoons of water. Working in 30 second increments, microwave on high, stirring in between, until melted and smooth (or melt in a small pot on the stove, then transfer to a bowl). Add the espresso pastry cream; whisk to combine. Divide the filling between the cooled pie crusts and spread into an even layer. Refrigerate about 2 hours (or overnight), or until set and chilled.  

Make the caramel sauce
3 Make the caramel sauce

(If you refrigerated the pie overnight, remove from the fridge at least 1 hour before serving to bring to room temperature.) When ready to serve, in a small pot (or the pot used to melt the chocolate), combine the caramel shards, 1/4 cup of the cream, and a pinch of salt. Cook on medium, stirring constantly, 4 to 6 minutes, or until the caramel has dissolved and the mixture is thickened. Transfer to a bowl and let cool slightly.

Place the remaining cream in a medium bowl (or the bowl of stand mixer). Whisk constantly, 2 to 3 minutes (if using a hand mixer or stand mixer, beat on high about 2 minutes), or until stiff peaks form. Top the set pies with the whipped cream and caramel sauce (garnish with flaky sea salt if desired). Enjoy!
