This was a recipe I have seen all over the Internet. I have never been a pie baker...I guess it's because I always thought they were just too much work. I'm more of a throw in the pan and hope it tastes good cook. But when I started seeing these all over I thought hmmm that doesn't look that hard. They were VERY easy and the kids loved to make their own.
Pies in a jar
1 recipe for pie crust (I used store bought)
2 cups of berries, or apples what ever you want in your pie
2 Tablespoons of sugar
2 Tablespoons flour
1 Tablespoon butter divided between the pies
6 (4 oz.) jars
Take your 4 ounce jar and some of the pie crust dough and press into the bottom. I just started breaking off pieces and started pressing it into the bottom. You do not need to grease the jar.
Take about 1/2 cup of filling per jar. Place a small amount of butter on top of the filling in each jar. Use your other pie dough to make little tops for your pies. I just used the 4 oz. jar lid to cut out circles. Cut out a vent hole. Then used a fork to seal them.
Place on a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.
As I was typing this my husband and I thought these would also make great chicken pot pies!! These can also be frozen before baking.
