Pie in a Jar

I love making these fun little pies!

From a previous post on my personal blog,  A Lioness at the Gate:  Paul called home last night after a long day at work.  He was looking forward to coming home to having a cup of ice-cream. I thought (to myself) I can do better than a cup of ice cream, so I decided to surprise him with a individual serving of a pie in a jar!  I have been wanting to make these for over a year after I found the cute idea on Our Best Bites (here is their link).

I had all the supplies on hand (1/2 pint wide mouth mason jars, pie filling, and ingredients to make the crust)!
 Line the jar with pie crust.
 Fill them up with 1/2 cup of pie filling.
 I brushed the tops of each pie with whisked egg yolk and then sprinkled them with sugar. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes or until golden brown on top.
 They were delicious!  You can even freeze them to bake later.
