Jar Lid Hand Pies

Jar Lid Hand Pies

Straight up, this is a public service announcement!  I saw this SOMEwhere, and instantly I knew I HAD to do it.  These were just too precious, and too easy not to share.  After I made them and posted a couple of photos on my personal page, there were so many people who shared memories of doing this as a kid.  Like "I used to make 'baby pies' out of pie dough scraps in mayonnaise lids," etc.  It turned out to be a fun walk down memory lane.  Who knew?!  Funny thing about stuff like that - the old, simple ways sometimes got forgotten by fast moving, high tech stuff... but revisiting the old stuff can be SO MUCH FUN!

I could totally see these being perfect for anything from a dinner party to a bridal luncheon to a picnic.  And on the other end of the spectrum, these would also make great savory pies.  Just imagine the possibilities - meat pies, taco pies, chicken pot pies, you name it!

Ingredients

  • 2 boxes (will have 1 pie dough left over)
