mini-cherry pie

Posted in Uncategorized by Dan Goshorn on June 20, 2010

I got a jump on cherry season by making cherry pies in half-pint mason jars.  I’m still experimenting with the filling recipe, in fact, I haven’t even tried one of these so I’m not exactly sure how it came out, but I wanted to document the process.

Step 1, filling:

I cut the pits out of the cherries and mixed with sugar and cornstarch.

Step 2, jar prep:

I made my standard 1/2 butter 1/2 pie crust and lined the mason jars. It takes quite a bit of crust to line all the jars so I made roughly a double batch of crust.

Step 3, fill:









Step 4, cover and freeze:

You can store the pies in the freezer and eat or hand them out as you see fit.  I’ve been passing them out to VIPs (Victor at Little Miss Whiskey’s).  Then just bake at 375 for 40-50 minutes.  Eat with ice cream.
