Pumpkin Pie (or any Pie flavor) in a Jar

Dec3

There’s just something about serving food in pretty glass jars that makes me so happy. I bought two cases of brand new canning jars at a yard sale, so this holiday season I will be brainstorming creative ways to use them. I love the idea of baking pies in a jar. Whether it’s pumpkin, apple, or cherry, I can assure you this pie in a jar recipe will be a hit, both with the beautiful presentation or the anticipation of a special gift.

My friend, Merissa from Little House on the Prairie Living, shares her story behind this Pumpkin Pie in a Jar recipe. “My grandma used to make the best food but she’d never write down a recipe for me. Finally after several years of begging I finally got her to write down at least her ingredients for recipes. Now that she’s gone I’m so thankful that I begged for some long because now we can keep some of our great family food traditions alive like this one for Pumpkin Pie.”

  3. How do you think the cooking time would be affected by smaller jars, like baby food jars? I have a pumpkin cook off coming up and these could be amazing as single serve portions.

    Oh, that would be a SUPER cute, award winning idea. I definitely think it would work, but I am not sure how long the cooking time would be? It would be easy enough to test it with just a few, and just keep your eye it.

    Is the crust just crumbled on top, or patted on or what – I want to give this a try!
