Mason Jar Pumpkin Pies
I run the risk of being called the mason jar blogger by creating another mason jar dessert recipe, but I just couldn’t help myself! I love pumpkin pie and everyone in my family is a little obsessed with eating dessert out of these cute little jars.
Tips for making mason jar desserts
Now making these mason jar pumpkin pies is really not rocket science. But there are a few tips that I want to share with you.
I used my recipe for Gingersnap Pumpkin Pies for the pumpkin pie filling. I have found that the 1:1:1 ratio of sugar to pumpkin to cream makes for the perfect pumpkin pie filling.
And for the crust, I always use Martha Stewart’s paté briseé recipe. I have been using this recipe since I was 20 (that’s over 21 years!). It never fails and is really the simplest recipe using simple ingredients, which is my criteria for easy baking.
And my favorite tip (and really the most popular one) is to tie these cute Thankful for Pumpkin Pie printable tags onto each one. They make the cutest presentation! Grab the free printable file at the bottom of this post!
How To Make The Best Mason Jar PiesJump to Recipe
This recipe makes eight 4 oz. mason jar pumpkin pies (depending on how high you fill them). I lined each jar with a circle of dough that serves as the crust. And I topped each pie with a dough leaf. This was just the right amount of pie to crust ratio.
And if you like pumpkin pie, be sure to check out my recipe for Gingersnap Pumpkin Pie. The combination is to die for!
Make the pate brisee and divide the dough in half. Freeze or save one half for a later use. Roll out the dough and using the top of a mason jar, cut out eight circles. One for each mason jar.
Use small leaf shaped cookie cutters to cut a topper for each jar. Put aside to add to the mason jar pies near the end of baking.
Put the dough at the bottom of the jar and then pour the pumpkin pie mixture evenly into each mason jar.
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Take out the pies and top each one with a pastry leaf cutout. Return to oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
One of my favorite parts about this recipe is that it can be made ahead of time, making Thanksgiving prep that much easier!
Top these mason jar pumpkin pies with a scoop of ice cream or some whipped cream. Or eat it for breakfast! Shhhh…that’s my favorite indulgence during pumpkin season.
