I recently made pies baked in tiny jars. They were perfection.
The dessert in a jar thing came at me in a few different ways. First was the mention of cakes baked in a jar over at Angry Chicken, and then with pretty frosting at Super Eggplant. What a brilliant present, an already baked cake all sealed up and ready to eat.
Later I came across these pies baked in jars at LloydAndLauren. Little pies, which you construct in jars and freeze to bake later so you have individual freshly baked pies basically on demand. This is genius. I was overcome with the need to make my own immediately.
Above, just out of the freezer. Below, just out of the oven.
Since I made them Lauren has displayed more genius, as well as an affinity for the tiny jars, in the form of individual frozen desserts in jars ready to pop out and eat. Oh, the goodness is almost too much for me.
