The best part of any meal is dessert, and nothing warms you up when it’s cold outside like a delicious pie.
As yummy as pie is, we’re used to making the same tried-and-true recipes over and over. Pumpkin pie, apple pie, pecan pie — these are all crowd favorites, and for good reason.
That said, it’s always fun for you and your guests to try new twists on familiar recipes. An adorable and, thankfully, easy way to impress them is to whip up some Mason jar lid pies.
Chances are, you probably have some old Mason jar lids laying around, which means you won’t need any fancy gadgets. There are endless ways to fashion your Mason jar lid pies, but our personal favorites are these three ways to make them.
The sweet potato pie is a twist on a Thanksgiving favorite that will most certainly get you and your fellow diners in the holiday spirit. However, if you’re more of a cheesecake lover, the mini cheesecake option will totally feed your craving. And chocaholics won’t be able to turn down the chocolate caramel tarts that are just as fun to make as they are to eat.
Since everything is more delightful to eat when it’s mini, these three recipes are sure to thrill everyone lucky enough to get their mouths on them.
