Apple Pie in a Cute Jar

Apple Pie in a Jar

Want an adorable mini apple pie recipe?  Well, today is your lucky day!  Just grab a glass jar.  This one is a Bonne Maman jar.

I used a biscuit cutter slightly smaller than the jar.  I could have gone one size larger it turns out.  But that is neither here nor there.

Now cut some circles out of a flour tortilla or a rolled pie crust if you have it.

Grab some cinnamon sugar.

A little butter…

A little cinnamon sugar now into the oven at 400 for 5 minutes, then check them.  I wanted super crunchy!

Now we start to layer.  One cinnamon crisp.

I cut up one granny smith apple and sauteed it in a little bit of butter, brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of unsweetened apple sauce, and add a bit of cinnamon for good measure.  Now scoop some in.

Add another cinnamon crisp on top.

Whip up some cream.  Or spray it out of a can.



Try to get a photo before you eat it all.

Turns out the cinnamon crisps are delicious just dipped in freshly whipped cream.   Enjoy!!

(This recipe makes 2 jars of goodness.  Just add more apples and tortillas for more.)

    Simple recipe but great idea. However, if I do make this a day in advanced and put in the fridge, would the cinnamon crisp be softened or still crisp? I would love to try it.

You put the crust, then the filling and the topping and you put it in the oven. Everyone will have their own little apple pie and they’ll all be delicious.{found on thriftdee}. […]

    It looks really pretty too! I would eat it if I liked cooked apples and whipped cream 🙂
