Apple Pie In A Jar


My husband adores Apple Pie! I have found my own twist to making it and when I do there is always high praise. Now, I think I've Tony's all time favorite thing to eat- Apple Pie In A Jar. It's all the goodness of apples, brown sugar and cinnamon in a personal serving.


You can also ship these for Christmas goodies or just to cheer up a friend. I promise you that if apple pie is your thing, you will LOVE apple pie in a jar!

Sarah's Apple Pie in a Jam Jar:

Filling:
6 apples, peeled and sliced
1 cup brown sugar
2 tbs cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tbs lemon juice
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 flour

Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bow.


Crust:
1 1/2 c flour
1 stick of unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp salt
1 tbs powdered sugar


Combine all ingredients in a bowl with a fork. Work until it all sticks together. If it's too sticky add a touch more flour.


Crumb Topping:
1/2 c flour
4 tbs unsalted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 nutmeg


Using a pastry tool or a fork combine all ingredients until crumb texture is achieved.



Place 4-6 jars on a cookie sheet. Divide the dough accordingly. Press each portion of dough into the jar, up around the sides and finally at the bottom. If more is needed, simple add it for the bottom and press down with fingers. Add about 1/2 cup of apple mixture to each jar and top with the crumb topping. Bake at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes or until bubbly and top and sides are golden brown.


Enjoy!
