I’m a former math teacher, so I like to celebrate Pi Day every year on March 14. Do you vaguely remember pi from Geometry class? It’s value is approximately 3.14, thus Pi Day is celebrated on 3/14. When I was teaching, I made several pies to share with the students who scored 100% on their Geometry tests that day. That was a lot of pie baking! I wish I had these Mason jar lid pie recipes back then. Serving the kids would have been so much simpler – and lots more fun!

Miniature pies are not only perfect for portion control, they’re easy to serve also. Once the pie is cool, just pop the bottom away from the outer ring. Canning jar lids are basically miniature tart pans with removable bottoms – but a lot cheaper! By the way, any of these Mason jar lid pie recipes would look great displayed on a checked tablecloth, and I know just the place to get one. Bright Settings carries gorgeous Polycheck Tablecloths in seven colors: lemon, moss, teal, royal, red, burgundy, and black. They’re pretty and practical, just like Mason jar lid pies!
