DIY: Mason Jar Pies

November 05 , 2011 by: Hong DIY, Food

The more I’ve explored Pinterest the more I’ve been inspired to be domestic. I recently found this cute idea of mason jar pies and thought it would be the perfect dessert for Thanksgiving Day dinner. So I had to do a practice run……and voila!

Not so bad huh? The Geek taste tested it and aside from the pie crust ratio being on the higher end to the apple filling he was pretty pleased. (Personally I prefer the high ratio, especially when cut with whipping cream). I took just one short cut with the pre-made pie crust. All in all it took no more than 15 minutes for the prepping and a total of 60 min. to bake.

One store bought pie crust package will cover six jars. Greasing the jars with butter will make it easier to release for serving. However, serving them in the jar is a great idea!

Apple pie filling:

2 cups finely diced apples

1 tbsp nutmeg

1 tbsp flour

1 tbsp cinnamon

4 tbsp sugar

a couple of diced butter to top off each pie

Cover with pie crust and bake at 375 degrees for 50-60 minutes. Enjoy!

  • Spent the weekend at anchor in Liberty Bay. These types of weekends alway remind me of how little we really need in life; nourishment, warmth, love, and a little attention. Happy Earth Day.
  • One of the things I love most about travel is the the discovery of universal languages such as food and an appreciation for culture. Some cities of course are better hosts than others at this but the discovery is part of the magic. This concludes my travel posts but I’ve decided to resurrect my blog to post more photos and tips specifically about Lisbon since some of you have inquired. More to come! ❤️
  • Lisbon; lively and busy but time stand stills. Modern with lots of character and respectful of traditions. Do yourself a favor and book your next trip to Lisbon. .
