Aren't these so cute? I got the idea from Pinterest.
Odds are, if you're getting a gift from me, these are included.
I made these labels to go on top. I'm probably going to add some ribbon.
Pear Apple Pie
Coconut Cream Pie!
I'd be so excited to get a basket of these, how about you?
Pie dough, since I had to make so many I bought refrigerated, to make 12 of these I needed 2 boxes
I used a bigger mason jar, so I needed about 3/4 cup of filling for each jar. I'm not going to give you a filling recipe. Just google for any pie filling if you need one.
First and foremost, put those jars in the dishwasher and run it.
Take the bottom of one jar and place it on your dough. Trace around the bottom with a knife. This will be the bottom of your pie.
Put it in the jar.
Use the same jar and roll the dough around it, so you can get an idea for how much you need. Cut it, and put it in the jar. Use your fingers to seal the edges with the piece you put on the bottom.
Add your filling. (about 3/4 cup for a pint Mason jar.)
Take the jar lid and trace around the dough again. This is your top. Cut a design for this if you want. I made little cherries for the cherry pie and Christmas trees for everything else.
Place your dough on top of your filling and seal the edges again.
Sprinkle with sugar.
Bake the "pie" without the metal lids in a 9x13 casserole dish at 350 for about 35-40 minutes, or until the top is brown.
Let cool and add a lid. Get creative with your labels. These were so fun.
You can also not cook these and give them frozen. Just be sure to tell the person you're giving them to to let the jar come to room temperature before they put it in the oven.
What do you think? Cute? Which pie would you want in your basket?
