Carole's StoryI had several open houses this past summer that I did the dessert displays for, and I usually do cupcakes of many different kinds, but wanted something a little different..I decided after looking up different options I saw one similiar to this...but came up with my own version with the smaller type canning jars. Great presentation, and I loved putting ribbon around the jar in her colors..this would be great for any occasion, holidays you could put holiday ribbon..Easter, Christmas, you name it. These went over so well, you had your own little cobbler to yourself. Jars can reused again!
(4) ounce size canning jars..wide type
(21) ounce can of either peach, cherry, blueberry pie filling
ribbon...variations of your color choice
whipping cream (whip with electric mixer)...or you can use cool whip
can also be served topped with ice cream
1Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Meanwhile wash and dry jars before use. Then spray with baking spray. Set aside.
2In a bowl mix bisquick, milk, 1/2 cup sugar and a pinch of salt. Mix until ingredients are incorporated, now add the melted butter..(butter should not be hot). Blend well, but don't over beat. You do this by hand..no mixer necessary.
3Now take canning jars and place in the bottom of each jar about a 1/4 of the can of filling...do not put it up close to the lid area, as you need room for the bisquick mixture to go over this. Now add about two Tablespoons of the bisquick mixture on top of the pie filling...this may not look like much but once baked it will make a nice crust on top of the filling(see picture above of what it should look like when baked). Now place jars on a heavy cookie sheet, you can even line it with silpat pad (I didn't) and place in an oven for about 30 minutes...watch carefully it may want to run over the sides of the jar...this means you filled it to much, not a problem once they come from the oven you can remove anything that spilled over the side of the jars with a clean damp cloth. Now cool completely...once cooled tie your favorite ribbon around the neck of the jar...and then just before serving top with whipping cream..I whip up a 1/2 pint of whipping cream and swirl on top with a decorator tube..if you don't have one just dollop on with a spoon. I always use a stabalizer when making my whipping cream, this keeps it from melting in warm weather, it was a 88 degree day when I took the pictures above and you can see how well the whipping cream held up in the heat. I do believe there is a whipping cream stabalizer recipe on JAP. I will be sure to connect this recipe to it, so you will have it on hand, IF you choose to use whipping cream. Cool whip can be used as well. Some may want to even use Ice cream...add just before serving. :)
4This recipe makes 4...I made a total of 12, tripled the bisquick mixture..using peach, cherry and blueberry fillings...they are simple to make, just the right amount of cobbler for one to even two people per jar, depends on your appetite! Enjoy...these are defintely a wonderful grab-and-go type desserts, just be sure they know to return your jars...lol!
