I got the idea at our family reunion when my aunt and uncle brought boxes of apples from the tree on my grandparent’s farm. I had read about making mini pies as gifts and even printed off the labels from the website recommended by debtproofliving.com.
I should have read the directions!
The jars I bought were pint-sized and I needed 1/2 pint-sized jars. I had the worst time pressing that dough into the side of the jars. I had to roll out the first one three times before I got it right.
Pie filling made of apples from the tree on my grandparent’s farm.
Since I used the wrong size of jars, I didn’t have enough pie dough to make a top crust. I made the crumb topping for the pies.
I put labels with the baking directions on top of the jars.
I used my grandmother’s pie dough recipe, see here, and apples from her tree. I gave my friends a taste of my childhood.
