I love this website.  Haven't tried this yet, and it's not as quick as the 5 minute chocolate cake in a mug, but it's still a cool idea!

FYI, you need to join the website to print the steps, but it's free to join, and the site itself is just awesome!  There's something for everybody, from baking to crafting to welding.

Thanks for posting this! I spend a lot of time on line looking at recipes and belong to a gifts in a jar group and I had never heard of these.

thanks for the link to this site. The( pie in a jar ) that I know of, was just apples ,spices, sugar and water mixed then sealed in a quart jar to open later to make pies.

Oh, those are cute. I used to do that with little pyrex bowls instead of jelly jars. If I was in a hurry i'd use pillsbury pie crusts, and I'd cut little leaves out of the excess dough and stick them onto the little pies, and everybody went nuts over it. I've also done tiny apple-brown-betty in the same manner. I like the idea of the jelly jars though.

I have some friends who had individual tiny wedding cakes made for each and every guest at their wedding. It was a huge hit. For some reason little desserts are just fun.

Carolyn: The recipe for jarred pie filling that you mention wouldn't be safe to keep more than a few days, and in the fridge at that, unless processed in a pressure canner, because it wouldn't be acidic enough to prevent bacterial growth.
