Cut Pie Crust

Clear workspace and roll out pastry dough (Image 1). Using larger circular crust cutter, cut 5-inch circle out of pastry (Image 2).

Fill Jars

Carefully place crust in glass jar; use your fingers to press dough against jar's walls (Image 1). Spoon pie filling into dough-lined jar (Image 2).

Cut Pie Top

On new sheet of pastry, use 3-inch circular pastry cutter to cut out top crust (Image 1). Tip: Use cutter with crimped edges for added decorative detail. Use a heart-shaped cutter to punch an air hole in the top crust circle (Image 2).
