Pie Party for 8
Required: 8 small glass mason jars (125ml)
  • Pie Dough:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp of brown sugar
dash of salt
  • 1/3 lb Tenderflake lard
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar 
cold water
  • Strawberry Rhubarb Filling:
  • 1 cup of rhubarb, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 cup of strawberries chopped into small pieces
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • Blueberry Lemon Filling:
  • 1 ½ cup blueberries
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • zest of one lemon
  • Juice of ½ of a lemon
  • Crumble Topping:
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ginger
dash of salt
  • 1/8 c melted butter
  1. Pie Crusts: Take the chilled pie dough and divided it into 8 portions. Take one portion and flatten it into a disk and then begin to press the pie dough into the mason jar. Keeping the dough less than a ¼ inch thick and even throughout, make sure the dough is pressed to the bottom of the jar and then follow up the sides. Jars can then be covered with saran wrap and refrigerated. Allow the jars to sit a room temp for 10 mins prior to filling and baking.
  2. Just prior to baking the pies, mix all the ingredients for each filling and place each in a bowl. The crumble topping can be mixed earlier.
  3. Have guests fill their jars with the pie filling and crumble topping just to the rim of the mason jar. Do not overfill the jars as they will overflow when baking. Set the BBQ to a temperature of 375. Place the mason jars on a cookie sheet and place the cookie sheet on the top rack of the BBQ. To control the temperature, shut off half of the burners and allow the pies to cook in the indirect heat for 30-40 mins depending on the BBQ. Continue to observe the pies, cover them with foil if the tops are browning and check the bottoms to ensure they are not burning. The pies are finished baking when the bottom of the jars are brown. Note: The mason jars can be baked in the oven for 30-40 mins in the oven at and oven temperature of 375ºF.
  4. Let the pies cool for 5 mins and then add a mini scoop of ice cream.
  5. Enjoy.
