Ever since seeing Not Martha’s tutorial on how to make a pie in a jar, I’ve been obsessed with them. I love the idea of a single serving of home made pie. Lucky for me I canned some yummy peach pie filling this last summer. I love this peach pie filling because it uses almond extract and no store bought pie filling can compare. Since I had all the ingredients already in my pantry I decided that it was time to make my little obsession a reality.
I used a pie crust mix and filled each jar with pie crust.
Next I added the pie filling and left a space at the top.
I then added a pie crust top. I simply rolled out the pie crust and used the jar ring as a cutter. Once the crust top was cut out in a perfect circle I used a small cookie cutter to cut out a little shape.
I then placed the crust on top and carefully pinched the pie crust top to the pie crust already in the jar. I baked it in my oven at 375 degrees until the pie crust was a golden brown. If you do this make sure you have a cookie sheet or something underneath. My little pies bubbled over a little bit.
These are adorable little pies and would make an excellent gift for a friend or neighbor. I think you can even freeze them and pull them out when you want a little pick me up. I wrapped up an extra pie in a jar that I had and gave it to my lovely cousin. She was so excited to get it.
