Summer desserts are always a good idea, especially when they are pre-portioned so you don’t overeat all that delicious sugar! Mason jar desserts are the perfect way to achieve a well portioned dessert, while being able to transport it easily. No more holding the pie in your lap as you travel to the cottage, or having to eat an entire pie in one sitting while you’re on a picnic just so you don’t have to balance it all the way home. Not only can you make pies in mason jars, but you can also create the ultimate cheesecake! With so many options, you’ll always be able to switch up your mason jar dessert recipes to keep it exciting and fresh at every picnic and family getaway. Dig in!
