Do you like pie? My husband does. He LOVES pie. Dean Winchester is his spirit animal on this. It’s insane. Anyway…our wonderful neighbors “Boo-ed” us over Halloween and I never returned the favor so for Hub’s birthday, we decided to Share the Joy of Pie and share some delicious pie. But we didn’t want to give away an entire pie because hello, we need to eat pie too!
What’s a friendly neighbor supposed to do? Enter, the pie trifle.
So, I headed over to Walmart and picked up my supplies. I need pie (duh) and some whipped topping. My go-to whipped topping is Reddi-wip® Whipped Topping and for the pie, I chose Marie Callender’s® Dessert Pies in the Dutch Apple Pie flavor. Nothing says fall like the smell of mulled cider and so I thought the Dutch Apple Pie would go nicely. You can also grab a coupon here when you’re ready to get started on this project. The pie is in the frozen dessert section and the whipped cream is by the milk.
So, are you ready to get started? Let’s start with the mulled cider. Here’s what you need:
– 1-2 cups of cider (depends on how many people are drinking)
– 2 cinnamon sticks
– 1 teaspoon of whole cloves
Stick it all in a pot and let it simmer while your pie bakes. It will make your house smell just like an autumn day. It’s amazing. Stir it every once in a while and when you’re ready to drink it, all you need to do is ladle out the cider. You don’t want to drink the cinnamon sticks and cloves so make sure you strain those out.
While your cider is mulling, you need to bake your pie. When the pie is done, let is cool for 1-2 hours and then assemble your supplies.
I used pint mason jars. They have a nice wide mouth, perfect for stuffing full of pie (before you stuff your own face anyway).
Step One: spoon some pie in the bottom of the mason jar, if you have to move the pie around to fill out the corners, do it! You don’t want to be skimpy with the pie.
Step Two: layer on some Reddi-wip® Whipped Topping. Everyone loves whipped topping so go crazy! If it looks like you filled your jar up, don’t worry, your next layer of pie will squish it down.
Step Three: make 1 more layer of pie and 1 more layer of whipped topping. I made 3 jars and used 3/4 of the pie. It was a perfect amount to give to our neighbors and have enough pie leftover for my pie-loving husband. When I brought it over, I also brought a mug of the mulled cider too.
I used a little bit of ribbon to fancy up my jars but you don’t have to. Other ideas for decorating the jar could be washi tape on the lid, scrap of fabric in between the ring and sealed lid, paint the outside of the jar. The possibilities are endless! How are you going to Share the Joy of Pie this season?
