Even more American than voting and elections... Apple Pie. You know it is true!
I had some time several months ago and I was going to a house warming event and I thought homemande pie would be a cool gift. But knowing that my host isnt someone to eat a whole pie and it was was just her and a roommate... a little pie would be better.
You might already know of my Pinterest obsession. This idea is no different. Here is the Pinspiration:
It looks yummy right!
Even after reading all about it I was skeptical.
I made a few jar pies by just putting my favorite dough inside the jar (store bought is fine). I used canned pie filling to try this out. I used a cutter to make a cute top. I gave two away with some instructions I hoped would work and kept two.
This past week I gave it a try. I took my pie out of the freezer.
I opened it up.
It kept really nice and fresh in the freezer.
Here is the part I was worried about... I am supposed to put this frozen pie... in a glass jar into my oven? Yeah. I was still leary.
So I set the oven to 400*F. Put the pie in when it was cool. Set my timer for 45 min.
When I came back it was hot and bubbly. Be careful when taking it out of the oven. I let it sit to cool for a moment and then I ate up!
The crust even got crunchy against the sides.
Would I made these again? You better believe it! Do you have finicky eaters that don't like the same kind of pie? This would be perfect! When I make it again I will show you more of the beginning steps.
