Mini Mason Jar Apple and Cranberry Pies

I love pie. All pies. But I have never gotten the hang of making my own pie dough. Especially not when there is a great one all ready for you to use.

Last year started my obsession with mason jars. They are just too cute for words. I have several that I have painted and I’ve even baked a chicken pot pie in some.

When I saw all over Pinterest these baked pies in the mini mason jars, I knew I had to try it. So my co-worker Michelle’s birthday was coming up and I thought I’d make these to take into the office. And I can report they were a hit at work.

They are a bit of work – even with ready-made pie dough and filling – but oh so worth it. Add some vanilla ice cream to the mix and it’s like buttah.

Mini Mason Jar Apple Cranberry Pies

Mini Mason Jar Apple and Cranberry Pies

Ingredients:

1 package Pillsbury pie dough
1 can Lucky Leaf Apple Cranberry Pie Filling
1 Tbsp sugar
Dash of cinnamon
6 mini mason jars
Pam spray

Instructions:

Wash your jars in hot water and dry.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Roll out your dough. Place a jar on the dough and cut a large circle out. You will be able to get 3 pie jars out of each pie dough, including covering the top.

Spray the jars with Pam spray.

You will need to gently fold the dough into the jar. Press the dough around the inside of the jar. Once you start pressing the dough, it will all fit together smoothly.

Repeat with the remaining jars.

Open the pie filling and add to the jars until they are filled to about the bottom of the rim.

Add your designs (or just a circle) to the top to cover the pies.

Mix together the sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle on top of the pies.

Place jars on a cookie sheet and bake for about 35 minutes or until pie crusts are cooked.

Serve with ice cream. Enjoy!

Mini Mason Jar Apple Cranberry Pies How To

Muddie Buddies

Last week I posted about my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary Dinner. I had originally planned to make six desserts (in addition to the two bought cakes and cupcakes) but due to a failed lemon bar recipe (okay two failed attempts), and not enough time, I only ended up making 3 extra desserts. And I was ok with that.

A year ago I would have stayed up late to get it done or just run myself ragged to get it all done. But lately I’ve been trying to make myself let things go. If things aren’t perfect it is ok. If I don’t get every craft or DIY item done I thought I would, it’s ok. It’s not the end of the world.

But I am so glad this little snack came through. It is the perfect treat for kids and adults alike. I had a six-hour drive back and was wishing I had some after the party. I’ll be making this again soon!

So this past weekend we celebrated my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary. I know, I know what you’re thinking. How can I possibly have parents celebrating 50 years being married? Well, obviously, I was a very late in life child. I have been so blessed to have an amazing family and my sister and I wanted […]

Lemon Butter Shrimp & Fettuccine

Lemon Butter Shrimp & Fettuccine

One of the many things I love about Lent is it’s basically the only time I eat fish on a regular basis. I forget the rest of the year how easy it is to make and how much I love it. Growing up, my dad used to go fishing all the time and would bring […]

I am a meat and potatoes girl. But sometimes you just have to eat a meal without meat. This past weekend I decided to make myself one of my favorite breakfast/brunch items – fried potatoes. I love cooking potatoes in a skillet. This time though, I incorporated a fried egg on top and it was […]

Italian Garden Vegetable Soup

Italian Garden Vegetable Soup @addicted2recipe

Growing up I didn’t eat a lot of vegetables. And if I did, they were mostly from the can. While I love corn, peas and green beans, I love them fresh most of all. In fact, I love a lot of vegetables now. I just sometimes don’t get to eat them as often as I […]

Chili Cheese Corn Chip Taco Casserole

Lately I have been on a chili cheese corn chip ride. I’m not a Fritos gal all the time, more like when I’m eating a hot dog and want to eat my Fritos with mustard. Or smother some Fritos in chili and cheese. Yum. But I keep buying these big bags of chips – you […]

Crinkle Cut Fries with Queso Bacon and Jalapenos

I have been making cheese dip/Queso for my family for years. And it’s always, always been with a Velveeta cheese. I don’t care what people say about this processed cheese, I love it. Having said that, I’ve always been a snob about that cheese you get in a can. You know the one. The one […]
