Pumpkin Cream Pie (served in individual mason jars)

I hosted a party last week and I wanted to serve a menu full of “fall-themed food.”  We had apples and caramel dip, s’mores bars, bacon wrapped hot dogs, pumpkin cream cheese muffins, and pumpkin cream pie in individual servings in mason jars.  Oh, how fun those desserts were and delicious too!  And honestly I think it only takes just a few minutes longer to make them in individual jars instead of one pan.

This was the original pin that inspired it.  Pumpkin Cream Pie from The Crafting Chicks.

I started by buying a dozen half-pint sized mason jars.  They run less than $10 at Wal-mart.  I plan on canning apple butter again in a few weeks, so I will be needing those jars for that anyways.  (I will just wash and reuse them.)

Prepare your crust.  (Full printable recipe below.)  I spooned some of the crust in each of the jars and pressed it down.

Then I mixed up the pumpkin filling.  Because I decorate cakes I had pastry bags on hand.  If you don’t, you can easily use a large ziploc bag.  Spoon the filling into the bag and cut off the corner of the ziploc bag.  Then pipe the filling into each jar.  This makes this part super easy!

Then top with a spoon full of cool whip or reddi whip.

Love the pretty layers!

If you wish you can sprinkle on a bit of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon on the top.

Everyone loved these at the party.  I didn’t even get to eat one that day so when I finally pulled mine out of the fridge to photograph and then eat, I found out why!  They were super yummy!

Now, for the free printable part of it.

This is how I presented them at the party.  I created a printable with 12 jar toppers on it.  Printed it out, cut out the circles, topped the jars and then screwed back on the lid.  Then served a tray full of ball jars topped with these cute jar labels.

So cute!

And just in case you decide to make these, I will include the Ball jar topper label so you can print it too.  Just click on the image, then right click and select “save image as”.  Then you can open it and print it (select 8 x 10 for the size and print it on a regular 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper).  I printed it on a sheet of cream card stock.

    Hello, I love love love this idea! my question is if I want to give these out to teachers for gifts what would you use for the whip cream topping instead? I think it would melt by the time they made it to school with my daughter. Any tips or suggestions? thanks so much. Marcie
