Hi Everyone!  I can’t even tell you how excited I am that Thanksgiving is almost here.  It is hands down my favorite holiday.  I have hosted it for the past few years and I so enjoy the whole week long process of decorating, baking and party making.  I don’t think there is really anything better than enjoying a nice meal with family and friends.  I run into the same problem every year though – no room for pie.  Pie is probably my most favorite desserts. I love baking a few homemade varieties for Thanksgiving dinner each year but after turkey, potatoes, and all the other fixings, no one – including myself – has room for this delicious treat.  But, really what is Thanksgiving without pie?

So… this year I decided that I am going to make take home versions for my guests. These Mason Pies Jars To Go with Printable Tags make a great party favor and to go treat for your guests.  They are super simple to grab on the way out and enjoy later.  I find my guest always feel a bit guilty and don’t necessarily want to go to the effort of cutting pieces and wrapping them to go.  Baking the pies in mason jars eliminates this problem and lets your guest indulge in a bit more Thanksgiving when they are less full.

For this post I made caramel apple pecan pies but you can also easily make these with any type of pie.

To make, you need:

  • Wide mouth mini mason jars
  • Your favorite pie filling recipe.  I use this apple pie recipe

Cut a circle out of your raw pie crust approximately two times the diameter of the jar.  Gently press the crust into the bottom of the jar and to the sides.  Pour in filling until it is slightly below the top edge of the crust.  Repeat with remaining jars.  Place on cookie sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes

Once pies completely cool, screw on tops and tie on tag.  To make it extra fun, you can download our APPLE PIE TAG and PUMPKIN PIE TAG!

If you want to make a different type of pie, simply, make the filling for your favorite recipe, follow the directions above to assemble but adjust the baking time.  Fruit pies need to bake until top is golden and bubbly. Custard pies need to bake until the edges are set but the center is still slightly jiggly.  If you are making a pie with a top crust, use the lid of the jar to cut out pastry.  Make sure to cut slits or a small hole so steam can escape.  I use this pumpkin pie recipe.

      I like the mini canning jars – sometimes I can find them at Target, but hardware stores (especially the mom’n’pop stores) almost always have them in stock, and most grocery stores do, too! :)

    Hi,
    Can you tell me how many ounces are in the jars? I would like to get real mason jars, but cannot find mini in any of my searches. I can find 8 oz or 16 oz.
    Thanks,

      These would be good to make a day or two before the holiday! Treat it as your would any pie. :)

      Yes! The pie recipes have the correct cooking temperatures and times. :)

    How long will they last and do they need to be refrigerated?

    • Laura Capello posted on November 16, 2015 at 8:54 am (#

      I would refrigerate them overnight, and they should last as long as “regular” pie – which, in my house, they get eaten quickly!

    Hi, I’m loving the mini-mason jar idea. However, I’m a little confused. Are you making the pies in the tins and them putting them in the jar or are you modifying it by putting the crust in the jar and baking the pies in the jar? If you are baking them in the jars, how long do you bake them for? Thanks.

      Hi Deborah! We baked the pies in the jars, following the same instructions for the mini pie recipes (which are linked in the post). :)
