Apple Pie

Yum 

These are cute little pies.  They are made in 4 oz jelly jars.  These can be frozen and popped in the oven when you want some pie.  That is what I really liked about this recipe.  I thought these would be good to make up and freeze to send with Billy when he moves to his apartment in the fall.  Then he can have pie whenever he wants.  I got the idea for this from the blog Our Best Bites   I also used the pie crust recipe from this site as well. 





Apple Pie filling:

5 apples
3/4 C  sugar
1/4 C  flour
1/2 t  nutmeg
1/2 t cinnamon
pie crust:
2 C  flour
11 T  butter
1/4 t  salt
4 to 5 T  ice water

Pie Crust:

Put the flour and salt in a bowl, cut the butter up and place in the bowl.  Cut the butter into the flour with a pasty cutter until the butter is in small crumbly pieces.  Add the water a tablespoon at a time until the dough comes together into a ball.  Wrap it in plastic wrap and put it in the fridge until ready to use.

Peel and cut apples into little pieces.  Then mix together the dry ingredients and pour over apples.  Mix well.
Roll out dough and cut dough into a 6 inch circle for the crust.  For the top of your crust cut a circle using the canning jar lid.  Put the 6 inch circle into the jar and spread it out to make the crust.  Fill the jar with your apple pie filling and then place the smaller circle on top and seal around the edges to close the pie.  Put 4 small slits on top of the crust.  Finish rolling the dough and filling the jars, this will make 8 jars.
Place jars on a cookie sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.
