2nd Attempt at Mini Pies in a Jar
What you need to get started is Mini Jars, Pie Crust and Filling and a baking pan
When putting in the bottom crust allow it to stick up over the edge to give you something to turn under and crimp later. Put filling in to about 3/4ths of an inch below the top. This way you’ll have enough room to put the top layer of crust on and press the edges together.
There is no really good way to get a small disk of pie dough into the jar and press it into place. Just manipulate it to fit around the jar.
Fold over and crimp the edges as best you can, it’s pretty difficult in such a small jar. Better yet, use a larger jar.
Bake somewhere between 350 and 400 degrees until the bottom of the crust is browning
