Mini Blackberry Pies ... in a jar!



Often people associate pies with fall.  The bountiful harvest transformed into a delicious dessert.  Pies really are an around-the-year-favorite at our house.  Fresh baked pies go with ANYTHING at ANYTIME in our book!

Our children, however, have not quite figured out how extremely delicious pie is.  Not really a problem, except when my husband and I end up having to eat a whole pie alone.  Again, not really a problem - but not really good for us either.  :0)


 Enter, mini pies!  Yep, they are pretty much the perfect portion.  *sigh*


Ok, so here are the needed ingredients to make individual mini-pies.  Start out by mixing together your favorite pie crust. You can find my favorite recipe here.  You only need one crust for this recipe.  If you have crust left over, just stick into the freezer or fridge.


Divide the dough into four equal parts plus one smaller circle.  The small circle is to make four little cut-outs for the top of the pie.  The little circle should be about the size of a cookie.  Take the four equal circles and roll them out till they are approximately 1/8"thick.


Now, press your pie crust into your little jelly canning jar.  Here is the recipe for the filling:


Mini-Blackberry-Pie Filling:

3 cups of blackberries
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
 3/4 cup sugar 

Mix well; pour into jars.  



With the little ball of leftover crust, cut out four little shapes for the top of the pies.  I had these cute tiny Gooseberry Patch fall cookie cutters that I used.

After layering in the pie filling, top with the cutouts.

Bake at 350 degrees until it begins to bubble, about 40-45 min.  Allow the pies to sit for a few minutes to cool and then ENJOY!
