I wasn't sure what I was going to post for Family Recipes this month. I have more baking than I really want going on right now (not good for that waistline!). Then I remembered I made this apple pie last month from Mom's Apple Pie in a Jar....and realized I could post about this!

This is a newer recipe of my mother's that she shared with me - and hopefully this fall if the apples are abundant enough (I understand they don't seem to be doing too well around here ) I hope to make some of her Apple Pie in a Jar to have on hand myself. When I made this pie it was simple as could be. I rolled out a pie crust, poured in the filling, made a crumble topping and baked at 350 til done! If you have apples this fall that you are looking to do something different with, well this is a great idea!

  9. What a great idea! This would make a good gift too. I am really looking forward to apples this fall (I'm adding this to my ever-growing list of things to do with apples... not sure there will be enough apples for everything I want to do).

    Now I want pie...

  10. Looks delicious - question though - how much filling does this make? I'm assuming it should be a pint of filling per pie so I should do this in pint size jars?

    Glad Aggie won that magazine. Sad I didn't. Maybe she'll share the copies with me :)
