Seven Alive and Apple Pie in a Jar

 Hello there!!!  Earlier this week, the lovely Kadie from Seven Alive did a feature on her blog about me and Jessie Street Designs...can you believe it - that is really AWESOME!!  Kadie has been so helpful to me and it has been a pleasure getting to know her and learn from her.  Check out her post here and leave a comment to let her know you came by...I think that she did a great job and I'm truly grateful for her support!

Today's recipe is really neat and tastes delicious - Apple Pie in a Jar!  I haven't made an apple pie in YEARS (back in highschool my part time job was working in a pie factory!) but when I saw this recipe floating around pinterest and blogland, I had no choice but to come out of retirement and give it a try.  Now, I wasn't going to get over zealous - I took some short cuts (ie. I opted for store-made pie dough - THE HORROR...ha!) it still turned out great!  My friend Chrissy, from The Taylor House also made these and found cute boxes to send out as gifts - isn't that a great idea!!  Give this a try, you won't be disappointed and ALL your friends are going to want to know where you got these are going to blow their socks off when you tell them YOU made them!

Apple Pie in a Jar

Here's what you need:
Apple Filling (from The Taylor House)
2 1/2lb of baking apples, cored, peeled and cut into approx. 1/2" pieces
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cut maple syrup

Crumble Topping:
From Yours Truly...
equal parts of flour, brown sugar and oats
Just enough butter or margaine to make it all stick together

Make your own from grocery store;)

Mix all the ingredients for the apple filling together and set aside....looks good doesn't it!

Using a large cookie cutter OR cut a large circle in the pie dough (that's what I did).  Press pie dough into  the bottom and along the sides of the jar.

Now mix all the ingredients for the crumble topping.  I found that it worked better using my fingers.

Add apple filling to jar and top with the crumble mixture.  Perfection!

These will need to go in the freezer right away until you are ready to eat give them away.  To bake, place jars in a cold oven and then turn oven on to 375 degrees, bake for approx. 30 minutes, it should be brown and bubbly!

Thanks for stopping by!!
