Individual Summer Cobblers in Jars

Hi Y'all - this is Paula!

Summer berries have arrived!  They are yummy, juicy and delicious.  What better way to enjoy them than in a cobbler? 

This idea is not my own.  A few weeks ago I discovered StoneGable.  Yvonne is good at everything - cooking, tablescapes, gardening and home and decor.  You name it and the Lady of StoneGable can do it!  Pie in a Jar from StoneGable  Click on the link and see Yvonne's recipe and instructions.  She is meticulous with instructions and I love that!

When I saw Yvonne's post on the jar pies, I knew I had to try it.  They were yummy.  The only size jars that our Wal-Mart had were a tad larger than the ones that Yvonne used.  I also used the rolled, prepared pie crust.  In my larger jars, I used two boxes of crust with a tad left over.  In some jars I even mixed the fruit.  Those were tasty too.  You never knew what to expect.  They were easy and delicious and I can't wait to make more.

These were made ahead for Memorial Day.  I just put the lids on the jars and stored them in the fridge until Memorial Day.  After breakfast I put them on the counter so that they wouldn't go in the oven cold.  The only complaint was that there was no room in the jar for the ice cream!  Men!!!  =)  That complaint was easily taken care of - the ice cream just went on the serving plate.  Easy fix!

Jars after adding pie dough.  So easy - just press it down all around.
Cherries, sugared and flowered.  Also added a bit of orange zest and a dash of vanilla.

Blueberries, sugared and flowered.  With orange zest & vanilla.
Strawberries, sugared and flowered.  More orange zest and vanilla.

Pies after egg white wash.
Pies after sugar dusting, ready to bake or store in fridge before baking.
Yvonne had this neat little star cut-out, but I had to improvise.
Adding lids to cobbler in a jar! 
Oh no!  Guess what?  We were so eager to eat the cobblers that we forgot to take an after baking photo!  I must admit, mine did not rise up as high as Yvonne's in the jars, but that did not affect the taste at all.  We had a difficult decision deciding which flavor to sample and some of us sampled several.  We loved them!  Thanks Yvonne, for the idea and for sharing the how to on StoneGable.  Visit StoneGable & Yvonne

Y'all take care and please leave a comment!

Good morning! Your cobbler in a jar looks amazingly delicious and cute.

I had to chuckle this morning when I read your comment about the sleeping bag fitting on my farmtable. Thanks for that little laugh.

Stay cool today in Texas!

The cobbler looks wonderful! I'll have to give it a try when I can get off this stupid diet...

Amy Kinser said...

What a great and fun idea. Your cobblers look delish.
