Pie Favors in a Jar {Recipes}

diy pie in jar favors

Just like “on a stick”, everything gets infinitely cuter when layered inside a mason jar and tied with a simple ribbon or tag. Favors are no exception! So make these delicious fruity pies in mini mason jars (or regular size!) then sit back and listen to your guests “ooh” and “aah” over how darn cute you are!

diy pie in jar recipe

Mini Mason Jar Pies

INGREDIENTS

Pie Crust Dough
2 12 oz. cans of cherry, apple or your favorite pie filling (Or mix blueberry and cherry!)

6 4 oz. mason jars, cleaned with lids and labels removed
1 baking sheet

DIRECTIONS

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Roll out dough and line the inside of your mason jars with little bits of the dough. Be careful not to make the lining too thick. Be sure to line them up to the rim!  If you wish, you can reserve some dough to cut out with cute shapes (such as hearts or letters) to place on top.

Fill your jars with your filling. Try a variety of fillings from can fillings to homemade depending on how much time you have!

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until pie dough is golden brown.

    These are so adorable. I love the way the variety looks with one woven top, one pecan and one with a cross top.

    Oh, YUM! I love pie and this seems, to me, to be a great way to make just a little of it (I tend to eat too much if it’s the whole big pie). Thanks for the idea!

      I would like more information on how they were mailed overseas, my brother is stationed in afghanistan and I would like to mail some to him.

        I used alot of bubble wrap around them, also did cakes in jars as well, make sure you use the priority mail boxes for the services men and you can save alot of money. email me anytime. My son is back again. God Bless your brother, and all our troops.

      I am so glad you said you mailed them overseas. I was just scrolling through to see if anyone had done it. Did you do it the same was as the cakes?

        yes, i sent cakes but used the quart large mouth jars and sprayed the inside with pam, I also did banana and other sweet breads and you can also do Monkey bread. They are great because once sealed, they last quite a long time and taste so fresh when they are opened. I just sent bought icing, and lots of spoons for them to share. LOL

    Adorable! I just made some cheesecakes in jars in my slow cooker and love the idea of pies!

    Could you make these, freeze them, and bake them later? I want to take them on vacation but would like to make them ahead of time and bake them fresh when we want them.

    These are oh so cute! I like pie in any form, but mini form is my favorite ;)

    If we don’t have those mason jars and we can’t buy them, then what do you think would be a good alternative to them?
