DIY: Pie in a Jar

Fall is definitely the time for pies, but as there's only so many different ways to jazz up a pie crust. This Green Wedding Shoes pie in a jar project is a really fresh spin on a classic dessert.
Check out this easy tutorial on Green Wedding Shoes to DIY your own pies.

Those heart crust toppers are a really great finishing touch. If the hearts are a little too cute for your Thanksgiving spread, use leaf cookie cutters instead. (image via Delish)
If you haven't already solidified your Thanksgiving dessert plans, use this weekend to grab your ingredients and jars. Happy shopping!

That's a great idea for Christmas gifts! I've decided most of my gifts will be home baked

Ms Jay,

What a great idea! Everyone loves getting gifts that are personalized and made with care. It puts the focus back on the sentiment of the season rather than the price tag.

Best,

That pie in a jar is just gorgeous! I definitely love the touch of a pretty pie top instead of the normal crust!

Hi PartyMom,

I completely agree. The Nerd's Wife featured a lattice-topped version and a leaf one for pumpkin pie.

Wonderful idea!
but I'm wondering how the crust comes out when cooked in glass, won't it stick to the jar?

Hi Cristina,

I've used glass pie plates for years. Mine came with a matching glass lid to cover the finished pie, but you can also find the plates without lids. You can also find pretty, colorful ceramic pie pans if the inexpensive aluminum pans aren't your style.

In either case, the crust bakes and the doughy consistency is transformed into flaky layers. In this instance, you eat the pie directly from the glass jar.

I hope that helps.

Best,

Shauna

Shauna thanks for explanations, we don't have much of "pie culture" here in Italy ;-)
I always use aluminium pans, but I'll try this nice recipe in glass!

Ciao!
Cristina
