To make: cobbler baked in jars
I made these for the Seattle Bake Sale for Share Our Strength organized by Frantic Foodie (thanks Keren!). I had so much fun making pies in jars that I figured this was the perfect opportunity to bake something else in jars. This time I used half-pint wide mouth jars, a nice size for a bake sale. (Half pint jars washed and drying.) I used the blueberry cobbler recipe from Baking Illustrated. I was making 24 portions so the first time I tried to divide each recipe between 8 jars (making three total recipes worth). (Look! These are great for bake sales because the packing is an eye catcher. The recipe, with notes on actually making it in jars, is below. Seriously, the cornmeal added to the biscuit batter makes all the difference here. I call this mise en jars, I used the washed jars from the overflowing and sticky (but sooo worth it) test batch. The scent of these baked goods right here is amazing. On the back of the label I listed things one might do with the leftover jar. 1. 2. 3. 4.
