Jelly Jar Deserts

I found some of these floating around the internet and was wondering what I was missing. Is this a new fad that I didn’t catch or is it something that only a couple people are doing and if so why? Well, so I tried a couple of them out and I have to say they are way cool. Super cool. I’ll be testing more out as I go along (and as I get more jelly jars, all of mine are tied up storing jelly for me).

Peach or Berry Cobbler in a Jar

1 pound frozen peaches or berries
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup Bisquick mix
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter melted

Preheat oven to 350. Spray 4 small (8oz) jelly jars with non-stick spray and set on a foil lined baking sheet.

Mix together the fruit, brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg. Spoon evenly into the 4 jars. In another bowl mix the Bisquick, sugar, milk and melted butter. Pour evenly over the fruit in the jars.

Put the jars into the oven while they are still on the lined baking sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the fruit is bubbly and the top is brown.

Let cool some before eating, because of the jars it might take hours. You can serve in the jars with a little whipped cream or a spoon of ice cream on top or just by itself…they are wonderful.

Monkey Bread in a Jar
1 tube refrigerator biscuit dough with each biscuit cut into quarters
1 ripe banana, diced
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter melted
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350. Spray 4 small (8oz) jelly jars with non-stick spray and set on a foil lined baking sheet.

Mix together the biscuit dough pieces, banana, brown sugar, butter and cinnamon. Spoon evenly into the 4 jars.

Put the jars into the oven while they are still on the lined baking sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the top is browned and slightly crispy.

Let cool some and eat right out of the jar.
