Give a Taste of Your Childhood

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!

Dough for my mini pies.

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 out 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 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.
