How to Make Apple Pie in a Jar
Make the dough: Place the almond flour, egg yolk, coconut oil, and honey in a processor and process for 30 to 60 seconds until a soft dough forms with no dry ingredients left. Divide the crust dough into four balls and freeze for 20 minutes.
Make the filling: Melt the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the apples, honey, and lemon juice. Cook until the apples are soft (about five to ten minutes). Add the cinnamon and lemon zest and cook for another minute.
Fill the jars: Roll out the chilled dough balls into four circles. Use a cookie cutter to cut a few holes. Fill the jar with apple filling until it’s about two-thirds full. Top with a dough circle and bake for 20 minutes. Cool to room temperature, top with coconut cream, and serve.
Make-Ahead and Reheating Instructions:
To Make-Ahead: You can make your apple pie jars ahead and freeze them just make sure the filling doesn’t go about two-thirds of the jar to prevent it from shattering. Save the dough separately by wrapping it in some cling wrap before freezing. You can separate the dough circles with wax paper to stop them from sticking together.
To Reheat: Once you’re ready to make your apple pie jars, take out your frozen dough and jars. Top your jars with the frozen dough and start baking. Keep in mind that it will take a few minutes longer since you’ll be baking from frozen. If the tops brown before the jar is warmed through, top with some foil and keep baking.
