pie in a jar

A friend at the office forwarded me a link to such a recipe, and I loved the idea instantly. You can bake single-serving pies in little canning jars! These would make such fantastic desserts post-thanksgiving with pumpkin pie, or work as beautifully latticed tiny pies brimming with cherries, berries, or apple slices. I haven't tried it yet but Sunday's a long way from over.

Great idea - and it would make a lovely Christmas gift as well - not only for someone who does their own preserving, but also for someone who hasn't ventured into that yet. And they could be wrapped in a preserving recipe or two as well :-)

Aren't those lovely? What a great idea for those who like different types of desserts within the same circle of diners. Thanks for sharing!

I love these! You can freeze them as well and put them in a cool oven
