Cherry Pie Recipe Directions:
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
Un-roll your pie crust so that it is on a flat surface.
Take one of your 4 ounce mason jars and cut circles out of the entire pie crust.
Place the circle in the bottom of the mason jar.
Take your next pie crust and roll it out. Measure the width of the mason jar and cut a strip of dough long enough to line the inside of the jar.
Press the pie crust dough into the sides of the jar and press the bottom seam together with the bottom round piece so there are no gaps.
Cut off any excess that is hanging off the top edge with a dinner knife.
Place the dough lined mason jar on a cookie sheet and move onto the next jar.
When you are done with all of the pie crust dough lined jars and they are all on the cookie sheet, put them in the oven.
Bake the mini pie crusts for 10 minutes or until they are lightly browned.
Remove the jars from the oven and allow them to cool for 10 minutes.
While the jars are baking cut out your cherry pie recipe toppers using a small heart-shaped (or cutter of your choice) cookie cutter.
Open your pie crust filling and fill each jar to the top of the pie crust.
Place your heart cut outs on top of the cherry pie filling.
Place the mini mason jars back in the over for another 10 minutes or until they are bubbly and the toppers are lightly browned.
Allow to cool. Dollop with a little vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
