Mason Jar Lid Pies Recipe

fort lauderdale personal chef event catering

Makes 12 individual pies
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes


–12 regular-sized mason jar lids and rings
–2 – 14.5-ounce cans berries in light syrup (cherries, blueberries, blackberries, etc.)
–½ cup granulated sugar
–3-4 tablespoons cornstarch
–1 – 14-ounce box refrigerated pie crust (2 pie crusts)
–1 egg, well-beaten
–Turbinado sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius). Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and place the inside rings of the canning lids on it with their rubber seals facing down.
  2. In a small saucepan, mix the sugar and cornstarch together. Drain the juice from one of the cans of berries into the saucepan and mix well. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has started to thicken. Drain both cans of berries, then gently mix in both cans of drained berries and set aside.
  3. Unroll the pie dough. Using a canning ring as a guide, cut a circle ¾-inch larger than the canning ring itself. (Alternatively, you can also use a cookie cutter or other object to cut out circles that are 3-¼-inch in diameter.) Cut out 12 pie crust circles, rerolling the dough as needed. These circles will be the bottoms of your pies.
  4. Make the top crusts by using a canning lid as a guide and cutting out circles ¼-inch larger than the lid itself. Cut out 12 tops, rerolling the dough as needed. Score each top by making 3 slits in the center of the dough.
  5. Make sure each canning ring on the sheet pan is fitted with its lid. Place the pie crust bottoms inside the rings fitted with lids, pressing up the sides.
  6. Spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of pie filling into each bottom shell. Do not overfill the pies or they will burst.
  7. With your fingertip, rub a bit of water around the edge of each crust. Cover each pie with a top crust and, using a fork, gently crimp the edges together.
  8. Brush the tops of each pie with the egg wash and sprinkle generously with the raw turbinado sugar.
  9. Bake for 25 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
Not familiar with turbinado sugar? This coarse, light brown cane sugar is also known as “sugar-in-the-raw,” and is made from pure cane extract by spinning it in a cylinder or turbine— hence the name! You can find it easily in the baking aisle of your local grocery store.
Refrigerated pie dough needs to warm up slightly before using, otherwise it will crack when you unroll it. However, do not let it sit out at room temperature for too long, as the dough will become too soft to bake as goldenly crispy as you want!
When you crimp the pie crust, use the edge of your finger to counteract the fork, rather than pressing the fork and the crust into the canning ring. You want to keep the crimped edge up off the canning ring, otherwise the crust may “melt” against the hot ring in the oven.

16 Best Benefits Of Corn (Bhutta) For Skin, Hair And Health

Corn, also known as maize or our good old ( Bhutta/Makkai/Challi ) in Hindi, ‘ Mokka Jonnalu ‘ in Telugu, ‘ Makkacholam ‘ in Tamil, ‘ Cholam ‘ in Malayalam, ‘ Musukina Jol a’ in Kannada, ‘ Makkai ‘ in Gujarati, ‘ Makai ‘ in Marathi and Punjabi and ‘ Butta ‘ in Bengali. Corn is a large grain plant which is said to have originated in Mexico and Central America. Though viewed as a vegetable, it is actually a food grain. The leafy stalk of the plant produces ears, which contain the grains known as kernels. For every kernel on the cob, there is a strand of silk. The white and yellow kernels are most popular, but today, corn is available in red, brown, blue and purple also. The white and yellow hybrids are known as butter and sugar corn which contain both kinds of kernels. This cereal is known for its pleasant taste and its versatility. Baby corn is available in cans or jars in the supermarkets and is used in Asian cooking. This grain is generally available in summer and can be

The History of Aluminum Foil: Just Don't Call it Tin Foil

Gerard Paul  September 11th, 2020  Cookware ,   Grilling & Outdoors   Aluminum foil – sometimes incorrectly called  tin foil  – is a thin, prepared sheet metal made of aluminum, often used in cooking (and food storage!). Although it may seem a little  dull  at first glance (especially on its dull side), aluminum foil has quite a fascinating story behind it. Many incredible things occurred before it became a staple in the modern kitchen.
