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!
