Mason Jar Lid Apple Pies
Mason Jar Lid Apple Pies | These cute single serving pies are perfect for any party. Full of crispy apples with a brown sugar and cinnamon syrup. These little pies would be the hit of any party. I love adding mini lattice work on top. If you don’t want to add a lattice design you can also add a solid piece of pie dough…just don’t forget to cut in some air vents. Why mason jar lids? Well….since you loved my Mason Jar Lid Cherry Pie and Black Forest Cake I thought I would take time to create Americas most popular pie…. Apple Pie!
Perfect and simple enough for picnics, barbecues, birthday parties, bake sales but also cute enough for wedding receptions, bridal and baby showers. This versatile mini dessert just about fits any occasion.
I used my HOMEMADE APPLE PIE FILLING for these fun little pies but you can go totally semi homemade and use canned pie filling. I also used store bought pie dough, if that’s not your thing you can use my PERFECT EVERY TIME 10 MINUTE PIE CRUST recipe.
Are you ready to create some fun little pies? HERE WE GO!
To make the pies I used wide mouth jar lids (you”ll need 18). You can buy just the lids anywhere where the jars are sold. They come in two sizes regular and wide mouth. The wide mouth is the largest of the two. Turn the inserts to all the lids so that the rubber side is facing down and not touching the dough.
Unroll the dough from the package (no need to for a rolling pin). Use a 4½-inch round cutter. Insert the dough round into the lid, bring up the sides, fill with pie filling.
Cut strips for the lattice or rounds to place on top. Brush with egg wash, sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mixture and bake. TIP: If using the solid top option make sure to cut slits so the air can escape.

I need to know if these mini pies can be frozen
Hi Darlene, yes these pies can be frozen raw or baked.
I want to make these pies for a party. How many days in advance can I make them?
Hi Melissa, If you plan on serving them fresh only a couple of days. These pies freeze beautifully and can be made weeks in advance.
Thank you! I’m excited to try them.
My Neighbour did these today. They look awesome.
Hi Parsy, That’s so cool!
Will a single recipe of your pie dough be enough for all 18 pies? I’m doing an apple day educational and cooking — learning about apples, Johnny Appleseed the creation of the Golden Delicious, etc and making applesauce, apple cookies and these mini pies with my 12 grandkids and would like to do it all from scratch.
Hi Diana, One of my pie dough recipes is enough for 2 crusts. This recipe calls for 3 boxes of pie dough. Each box has pie crusts. I think you might need to triple the recipe.
Hi Jayne, Thanks.
