What do we want? Pie. How do we want it? In a tiny, adorable shape. Seriously, it’s about time you put those mason jar lids to work. These mini pies are exactly what you need for a single serving of sweet gooey goodness. They make great gifts, and it’s easy to make a bunch at one time to bring to social occasions. Try it out – you’ll never go back to baking normal-sized pie again.

    Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the mason jar lids on top. Spray lids with cooking spray.

    Cut out 20 seperate 3 1/4 inch circles out of the pie crust. Place ten of them inside the lids, making sure to press around the bottom so that the crust hugs the inside of the lids.
