Peach Pies in a Jar

1
box Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts (2 crusts)
4
large, ripe (but not mushy) peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced
1/4
cup sugar
1
tablespoon lemon juice
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon vanilla
1/4
teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
1
tablespoon cornstarch (or ground instant tapioca)
for
sugar top of pies (turbinado, or raw sugar, works well for this)
as
toppings desired
4
(4 oz.) wide-mouth canning jars

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Allow pie crusts to sit at room temperature 10 minutes before using. Meanwhile, clean and dry the jars. Unroll the first crust on a cutting board and cut into quarters. Fit one quarter into each of the jars, pressing crust to fit up sides and along bottom of each jar.
  • 2 In a large bowl, combine peach slices, sugar, lemon juice, salt, vanilla, cornstarch and nutmeg (optional). Let sit 5 to 10 minutes until peaches are juicy.
  • 3 Meanwhile, cut 4 circles from the second crust, each approximately the same size as the mouth of the jars. Cut each circle into strips.
  • 4 Using your fingers, place peach slices into the jars, layering to fit as many as possible in each. Spoon a Tbsp of the liquid from the bowl over the peaches in each jar.
  • 5 Using the lattice pie crust technique (weaving basket-style), add strips to top of pies. Gently wet the strips and sprinkle with sugar.
  • 6 Place jar-pies on a baking sheet and place in preheated 400 degree oven. Bake for 20 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 and bake and additional 10 to 15 minutes. Remove pies to a cooling rack and cool completely before serving.
  • 7 Topping suggestions: Whipped cream dusted with nutmeg or cinnamon, cinnamon ice cream, vanilla bean ice cream, peach syrup, or mashed berries.
  • 8 Note: The canning-jar covers can be used to transport these pies to a picnic or potluck!

Peach Pie in a Jar  

As prepared by tbspSusan

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:
