Easy Apple Pie in a Jar Recipe
by Kimberley 


Who doesn't love apple pie? I think pretty much everyone LOVES apple pie. And it is a staple at family gatherings and holidays. I always bring a dessert to a party and, as you know, I am a little obsessed with putting food in jars. So... I had to come up with a way to make a quick and easy apple pie in a jar that you could take to a party or serve at your next get-together. 

You do not need to be an accomplished baker to pull this off. In fact, it is so easy but so impressive that your guests will love it!
This recipe makes 4 jars, but you can easily double or triple to make lots for a party.

Supplies and Ingredients:

4 glass jars (or you can use ramekins, dessert bowls, drinking glasses)

1 sheet of frozen puff pastry

1 can of apple pie filling (or 1 cup homemade)

1/2 stick of melted butter

4 Tablespoons of sugar

1/2 cup whipped cream or 4 small scoops of vanilla ice cream (optional)

My Mom gave me my first cookbook when I was six years old. I have been baking & cooking ever since.

I specialize in artisan marshmallows & confections. I want to sell a product that I would feed my children. The ingredients are simple, often local, organic & fair trade as well.

I love making marshmallows. Every single one. It brings me so much joy to create something unique, tasty, and delightful.
