Three Pi Day Pie Recipes to Make in a Lagunitas Mason Jar
Pie in a Jar
In honor of Pi Day, we made ya three pie recipes you can make in your favorite Lagunitas mason jar.
Chocolate Pie in a Jar:
Make some chocolate pudding (we just used the boxed kind and followed the instructions, but you get as fanc-ay as ya like).
Get some graham crackers and smash ‘em up.
Melt some butter and mix it up with the graham cracker crumbs.
Alternate layering the graham cracker crumbs with the chocolate pudding in the mason jar. Make your layers about ½-1 inch thick. The bottom layer should be graham crackers and the tippy-top layer should be chocolate pudding.
Top with whip cream and bam! Chocolate pie in a jar.
Boston Cream Pie in a Jar:
Bake a vanilla cake in a 9×13 pan. (We used the boxed kind and followed the instructions on the box to a tee).
While you’re waiting, make some instant French vanilla or custard putting (once again, make it easy on yourself and use the box mix), letting it set before assembly.
Once the cake is done and cooled (patience is key here), cut it into 2-inch circles (or just a smidge smaller than the mouth of whatever jar you’re using).
Microwave a can of store-bought chocolate frosting for 45 seconds to thin it out a bit.
Now you’re ready to assemble! Begin with a very large dollop of pudding, followed by a cake round, and then some chocolate frosting. Repeat the layers a second time, ending with the chocolate frosting on top.
Top with whip cream and chocolate sauce or fudge. Boom…Boston cream pie in a jar!
Blueberry Pie in a Jar:
First things first, you’ll need some pie crust (we used the easy just-add-water-kind…are you sensing a theme?).
Roll the dough into a ball, then flatten it out and cut into rectangles.
Press a doughy rectangle around the inside of each jar.
Preheat your over to 400 degrees HOT.
While the oven is preheating, mix two cups of blueberries with about ½ cup of sugar (depending on how shweet ya like it). Add a pinch of salt and cinnamon and mix it all together.
Fill the dough’d jars with the blueberry mix.
Top the jars with a very fancy lattice, creating a crisscross pattern with the left-over dough.
For that extra *toasty* look, glaze the top with butter and a sprinkle of sugar. Bake for about 30 minutes at 400 degrees. There ya have it! Blueberry pie in a jar.
First things first—when it comes to beer and food pairings you must break down the flavors you’re workin’ with. The zymurgical institution that is the Waldos Triple IPA has been described at times as herbaceous, botanical, resinous, and dank. We hope we have you salivating. Now go get cookin’ (or takeout-ordering…no judgment), and find your favorite Waldos pairing.
