Here’s a little twist on this beloved dessert institution. These Traditional Pecan Pie in a Jar are the perfectly sized sweet treat that will finish off any big, satisfying turkey dinner.  This crunchy, golden, deeply toasted nutty dessert will satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! This is the time of year that I consume treats with reckless abandon! Ok, I do have some self-control. But I love the big, hearty Thanksgiving meal. I particularly love the desserts that come after you loosen your belt. One year I was asked to bring a pecan pie to a Thanksgiving get together. I wanted to do something a little bit different than walk in carrying a regular pie in a pan. So, I have always loved the cute little mason jars. I figured, why not give everyone his or her own petite dessert? They are the perfect portions after such a big meal.
  • 2 cups pecan halves, coarsely broken
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¾ cup light corn syrup
  • ¾ cup dark corn syrup
  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla
  • pinch salt
  • 2 refrigerated 9 inch pie crust dough
  • 8 half pint wide mouth mason jars, clean and dry
  • Twine, if you so desire

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spread pecans on a cookie sheet and bake for 6 minutes to toast them. Set aside and let cool while you prepare the filling.
  2. In saucepan boil sugar and corn syrups together for 2 minutes; set aside to cool slightly.
  3. In large bowl beat eggs lightly and very slowly pour the syrup mixture into the eggs, stirring constantly so they don’t scramble.
  4. Stir in butter, vanilla, and salt.
  5. Spray all jars with non-stick cooking spray. Fill jars with pieces of dough half of the way up the jar and press down to fill the bottom and ⅓ of the way up the sides. Fill the bottom with a good layer of pecans and then pour filling to just below the lip.
  6. Place the jars on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes until done. Check at 25 minutes and cover top loosely with aluminum foil if it is getting too dark on top. Let cool for several hours before serving. Serve with sweetened whip cream or vanilla ice cream if desired. Tie with twine to make them extra special!
These little desserts freeze beautifully. But, do not bake them before freezing them. After the sugar and corn syrup mixture has completely cooled down, you assemble the ingredients in the jar, put the lid on and freeze them.

I have frozen mine up to 1 month, after that they are calling my name from the freezer! When you take them out of the freezer, remove lids from jars and place jars on a baking sheet. Place baking sheet in a COLD oven. Then turn the oven to 375. That will give the jars a chance to warm up slowly as the oven preheats. If you’re really worried you can always let them sit at room temp for a bit first before putting them in a cold oven, but these are canning jars and used to extreme temperatures. Bake for about 50-60 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown and the middles are bubbly.

You know about the auto insurance companies that boast about their low premiums on national television, radio and social media. They really want you to internalize their messages. The truth of the matter, though, is that there may be a misconception about what they mean. "Replace your current coverage with ours," they proclaim, "and you'll find savings on your auto insurance!" Or "Allow us ten minutes and we will present you with a cheaper rate than others." The real facts indicate that most vehicle drivers will not get any savings with a policy switch to a direct insurance company. This is because no dependent company has the wherewithal to offer any other coverage than their own. The shimmer of a cheap quote can actually be the mask covering an increased insurance deductible and less liability coverage. In order to underscore this important lesson, we bring you this actual narrative involving someone who decided to go with an independent agency's ability to locate tailored car insurance for him. A motorist who had previously been insured through one of these highly advertised dependent companies that promote 'cheaper rates' decided to go with an independent agency known for their impeccable customer service. Following a review of this man's 'cheap' auto policy, the insurance specialist discovered some serious gaps in coverage. Understanding this could cause serious problems if the insured should ever be involved in a car accident, she went to work, looking through the many policies offered through her company's network of providers. She pinpointed an excellent plan that covered the gaps and had an attached competitive low rate. The customer was satisfied with the find and left with a fresh peace of mind due to his newly acquired policy. As fate would have it, it was not long afterwards that this insured was involved in a car crash that left his vehicle in a totaled condition. Because the other driver was at fault in this collision, it was assumed that the other driver's insurance company would pay for the damages. But there was one major snag to this. The other insurance company offered to pay an amount that was far below the totaled car's worth. It was then that the new policyholder whose car had been totaled decided to call his new company. The insurance company gave him no hassle, no problems. Instead, they mailed him a check made out to the amount that genuinely represented the worth of his car, three thousand dollars above what the at fault driver's insurance company offered! Guaranteed: the happy ending to this true-to-life story would have been very different if that 'cheap premium' policy with gaps in coverage would have been in place.

Do you have the right car insurance? Well, many people think that it is a must to have the right car insurance. It will be better if you get the best one with cheap auto insurance. While most people know whether they have liability, collision or comprehensive coverage, some people pay much attention to their insurance coverage until after they have been in an accident, the others just do not really care about it. Shopping for car insurance is an important planning topic that is often overlooked since most teenagers are added to mom and dad's insurance policy when they first get behind the wheel and then later shop for the least expensive policy when they have to the pay the bill on their own. In this article, we will be discussing car insurance coverage and so you will get some tips to help you get the most for your money. Cheap auto insurance has two primary benefits. The first one is protecting your assets and the second one is protecting your health. Getting the proper coverage is the first step in the process. These are the basic types of coverage with which most people are familiar: 1. Liability: This coverage pays for third-party personal injury and death-related claims, as well as any damage to another person's property that occurs as a result of your automobile accident. 2. Collision: This coverage pays to repair your car after an accident. It is required if you have a loan against your vehicle because the car isn't really yours - it belongs to the bank, which wants to avoid getting stuck with a wrecked car. 3. Comprehensive: This coverage pays for damage incurred as a result of theft, vandalism, fire, water, etc. If you paid cash for your car or paid off your car loan, you may not need collision or comprehensive coverage. In addition to the coverage listed above, other optional coverage types include the following: a. Full Tort/Limited Tort: Your insurance will be reduced by a few dollars if you give up the right to sue when you get an accident. However, giving up your rights is rarely a smart financial move. b. Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays the cost of medical bills for the policyholder and passengers. If you have good health insurance coverage, this may not be necessary. c. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: This type provides for medical and property damage coverage if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. d. Towing: Towing coverage pays for a tow if your vehicle cannot be driven after an accident. If you are a member of an automobile service, or if your vehicle comes with roadside assistance provided by the manufacturer, this coverage is unnecessary. e. Glass Breakage: Some companies do not cover broken glass under their collision or comprehensive policies. In general, this coverage is not worth the long-term cost. f. Rental: This insurance option covers the cost of a rental car, but rental cars are so inexpensive that it may not be worth paying for this coverage.
