Frugal Christmas Gift: Cherry Pie in a Jar

I've showcased Brandi's famous Cherry Pie in a Jar recipe several times since she first shared it with us two years ago.

{Cherry Pie in a Jar}


What You'll Need:

Mason Jars

Pie Filling

Pie Crusts



1) Grease/butter jars and set aside. I used butter but had a hard time getting it in the very bottom.
2) Roll out dough. I used premade dough and rolled it just a little bit thinner.
3) Use jar lid and cut a circle out of dough. Once cut place in bottom of jar.
4) Cut remainder of dough in strips and a place in jars vertically, some will stick out on top.

5) Add pie filling. Only fill about 2/3-3/4 full, you will need room for crust to expand, this will make the filling rise.

6) Crimp crust around top. Just like a regular pie you will want to roll down and crimp the edges of your “pie”. This is also why you only fill jars 2/3-3/4 full, you will need room for your crust to expand a bit but still have enough room to place lid on jar once finished.

7) Bake. Bake at 400* for about 35 minutes, time may vary depending on how many jars you are baking and your oven. You will want to bake on a cookie sheet. However, I found it easier to place to cookie sheet in the oven first then place jars on it.
8) Allow to cool. Once cool top with your lid and add a cute ribbon or add a dollop of ice cream and enjoy!


Easy and frugal!
