Pie in a Mason Jar

Pie in a Jar #DIY

It’s THAT time of year…time for everything that could possibly be made in a mason jar! This is a super simple DIY that can be used as a teacher gift, neighbor gift or just a quick dessert. Plus, you can cater it to your own personal allergies and preferences.

I used a Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust and rolled it out. You can make your own pie crust or use the Pillsbury Gluten Free Pie Crusts and simply roll out and slice into small strips using a pizza cutter.

Next, place your strips into the jar surrounding the edges and leave some hanging over. After that, add your pie filling. I called this cherry pie in a jar but then realized that is obviously apple pie in the picture. That just goes to show that you can fill your jars with whatever pie filling you choose. Typically, I only use cherry pie because that is my favorite but I changed it up a bit this year.

Next, simply fold over your remaining pie strips that were hanging over the jar. For cherry pie, I always sprinkle sugar on top. For the apple pie, I sprinkle cinnamon. Then, you’re going to start baking right in the jar! This is SO easy and it’s my favorite gift to give for Christmas.

Ingredients:

  • Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust (Can use gluten free pie crust)
  • Pie Filling
  • Sugar or Cinnamon (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Roll out a refrigerated pie crust (if you use a homemade version, be sure to refrigerate for a bit until firm). Then, slice into small strips. The size of the strips will depend on the size of your mason jar.

Place the strips inside the jar and line it all the way around. Then, fill with pie filling of your choice. Leave a little bit of space on top because the pie will rise as it bakes. Cover the pie filling with the strips and sprinkle a bit of sugar and/or cinnamon on top if you'd like.

Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes or until crust is brown. Time may vary if you use a different version, just follow the directions on the box.

Seal with your lid and they can keep for awhile, I always eat them right away!
