Farm Fresh

… Fresh on to the farm. Here is an occassional chronicle of a new family in a small town.

Pies In a Jar

We made a lot of these for Summerfest! More on that to come. But what we learned is- do not cook them frozen- duh! You can store in freezer which is awesome but you should thaw them before cooking.  We had 50 to bake and it took us along time. They were worth the wait. I am excited to try them with savory fillings like beef pot pies.

These are too good to be true. I roped Natalie into helping. She is the baker after all. I am not. But I was driven by the cuteness. One batch of dough made 5 pies. We used the lids to cut out the bottom and top of the crusts. Crust recipe is 2 cups flour, 1 cup butter minus 2 tbsp butter and substitute for crisco. Better if cold not frozen. Put in food processor and pour in ice water until a good consistency. Good luck with that.
