  • One Large Can Of Cherry Pie Filling
  • Two Packages of refrigerated Pie Crust (each package has two 9 inch pie crusts, you will use a total of 3)
  • Twelve 4 ounce Mason Jars
  • Mini Cookie Cutters of choice.


  • Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Un-roll your pie crust so that it is on a flat surface.
  • Take one of your 4 ounce mason jars and cut circles out of the entire pie crust.
  • Place the circle in the bottom of the mason jar.
  • Take your next pie crust and roll it out.  Measure the width of the mason jar and cut a strip of dough long enough  to line the inside of the jar.
  • Press the pie crust dough into the sides of the jar and press the bottom seam together with the bottom round piece so there are no gaps.
  • Cut off any excess that is hanging off the top edge with a dinner knife.
  • Place the dough lined mason jar on a cookie sheet and move onto the next jar.
  • When you are done with all of the pie crust dough lined jars and they are all on the cookie sheet, put them in the oven.
  • Bake the mini pie crusts for 10 minutes or until they are lightly browned.
  • Remove the jars from the oven and allow them to cool for 10 minutes.
  • While the jars are baking cut out your cherry pie recipe toppers using a small heart-shaped (or cutter of your choice) cookie cutter.
  • Open your pie crust filling and fill each jar to the top of the pie crust.
  • Place your heart cut outs on top of the cherry pie filling.
  • Place the mini mason jars back in the over for another 10 minutes or until they are bubbly and the toppers are lightly browned.
  • Allow to cool. Dollop with a little vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
