These little pies are great for a picnic. They are prepared in 4″ canning jars so there are no need for extra plates. Just eat them right out of the jar!
Standard crust recipe:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tablespoon flour
Combined dry ingredients with pastry cutter, add a little cold water at a time until form a ball.
Roll into four 6″ circles.
Place dough into 4″ canning jars and press down into the jar. Cut off excess dough.
Mix together berries, sugar, and flour in a bowl. Add to prepared jars. Fill jars 3/4 full. Make sure you do not over fill because is will bubble over and make a big mess.

With a small cookie cutter, cut out a small whole in center of the 3″ circle. Place crust on top of canning jar and press down around the edges.
