We found this awesome DIY great for favors, giveaways, or just to do…b/c its soo cool!! Thanks Green Wedding Shoes for sharing this great DIY.

Ingredients:Pie Crust Dough (fave recipe or pre-made)2 12 oz. cans of cherry, apple or your favorite pie filling2 Tb of sugar1 large egg beaten

Supplies:6 4 oz. mason jars, cleaned with lids and labels removedHeart shaped cookie cutter1 Cookie sheet


Directions:Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Press the unrolled dough bit by bit into the jars a bit at a time (not too thick!) until the jars are lined with the dough up to the rims. Reserve some dough for toppers. Next, fill jars nearly to the top with filling of choice.


Roll out reserved dough to roughly 1/8 inch thick and cut out 6-8 hearts. Place the filled jars on a sturdy cookie sheet and place into oven.


Bake at 325 degrees for roughly 30-35 minutes or until dough becomes a light golden color.
At that time, arrange the dough hearts on the pies, brush the hearts with the egg wash and sprinkle with sugar. Bake an additional 10-15 minutes until dough is golden brown all the way around the jars. If needed, place foil over the tops of the jars to keep the hearts from burning.
Remove and let jars cool on a rack. Decorate with ribbon, tags, or labels on lids as desired and give to your family, friends or wedding guests!
