Cherry Pie in a Jar

Would you believe me if I told you two ingredients is all you need to pull these tasty little treats together? Well it’s true, TWO ingredients is all you need. Pie crust and pie filling. That’s it ; ) The hardest part will be waiting for them to bake up. We baked them up in perfect 4 ounce portions.

You knew a pie was coming didn’t you ; ) I mean we’ve already baked: MONKEY BREAD in a jar, PINK LEMONADE CUPCAKES in a jar, PEACH COBBLER in a jar, so it was only natural that a pie would be next. And I’m pretty sure we saved the best for last.

Not that I would turn down any of the above mentioned desserts in jars but there’s just something special about a warm bubbling cherry pie ; )

NOTE: Again I would like to mention that I have not tested any of my dessert in jars desserts for long term storage. My dessert in jar recipes are meant to be enjoyed immediately {which is fine by me because I’m not the most patient person in the world ; ) }
