Mason jar pies are just as delicious as normal pies, but have way less calories in them. Wonder why? Because you only have one layer of dough. In a traditional pie you would first have a bottom layer of dough, then the filling, and then the crust. When making the mason jar pie you can completely skip the first step and just go straight to filling. To make the crust you just take some dough and stretch it over the top of the jar. Bake just the same as you would a regular pie. It’ll look awesome, it’ll taste delicious and it’ll be a lot healthier and less fattening than a regular pie. By the way, this works for both savory and sweet pies.
