These little lattice-top personal peach pies in jars are the perfect way to use fresh peaches this time of year!
The first time I made peach pie, I forgot the sugar. I served each slice with a dollop of whipped cream, and they looked positively Martha. I was pretty sure I was about to receive a standing ovation.
My dad took the first bite and his face wrinkled up like he had eaten a lemon. I forked into my pie slice and gasped for my glass of water. Ack! Sour!Note to self: Next time, test the fruit and use a little sugar!
It's been a few years now, and I'm no longer that virgin peach-pie baker I was back then. These days, I use recipes -- but I still love to experiment!. This recipe I modified from blog.babble.com
is pretty much fool proof -- and even easier with Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust.
Aren't these ridiculously adorable? WAY
cuter than ordinary slices of pie!
Here's the skinny on these cutie pies so you can make them too.
1. Cut a Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust into quarters:
2. Fit one quarter of the pie crust into each of 4 small, wide-mouth canning jars. Mold the dough to fit the sides and bottom of the jar:
3. In a large bowl, combine the peaches and other ingredients. Stir and let the peaches sit 10 minutes to get juicy. Put the peach slices in the jars, fitting them puzzle-like to get as many in there as possible. Drizzle a Tbsp of the remaining juice over the peaches in each jar:
4. Unroll the other pie crust from the box and cut 4 circles from the dough, each one about the size of the jar opening. Slice each circle into strips. Weave the strips basket-style for the top crust, then sprinkle with sugar:
They do not
need to be perfect. Trust me. (But if the weaving thing stresses you out, see our easy how-to video below.)
5. Bake and allow to rest about 20 minutes after baking so the syrup sets up a bit. Then serve warm or cool:
Who wouldn't love to have a mini peach pie in a jar for dessert? Awesome fun!
Does the lattice top befuddle you? No worries! Here's a video to help:
Even better: Serve with whipped cream, peach syrup, mashed berries, or vanilla bean or cinnamon ice cream.
