Little Baby Freezer Pies
Here you'll find the basic recipe. Naturally, you can adjust. Add more dry ingredients if you have more fruit. Using really juicy, sweet fruit? Use less sugar and more flour to thicken. You get the idea.
• Little Freezer Jar Pies •
4 c. fruit (I used chopped apples and cranberries)
.5 c. sugar
1.5 t. pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon & nutmeg)
2 T flour
Mix together, spoon into small canning jars, dot with a smidge of butter and place crumb topping or pie crust on top. (I just rolled out dough and used the screw top jar lids to cut circles out.) If you use pie crust, be sure to use a knife and cut little slits to let the steam escape. Screw lids on tight and pop in the freezer.
When ready to bake, remove lids, place on cookie sheet (to catch the drips) and bake at 375 degrees for about 50-60 minutes (or 45 minutes if not frozen).
And if you have any extra ingredients? Place in ramekins and bake up for dessert tonight! No delayed gratification required.
