I love to serve fun recipe hacks for my family. I don’t necessarily feel the need to create everything from scratch, but I do want to find ways to serve a ready made dessert in a new, fun way. This weekend I baked a Mrs. Smith’s Pumpkin Pie but then served it to my family with a fun twist. I added some blueberries, graham crackers and served a fun Blueberry Pumpkin Pie in a Jar.
Blueberry Pumpkin Pie in a Jar
Maybe you are one of those cooks who does everything from scratch. Yes! Sometimes I enjoy that too. But when it comes to holiday entertaining, I’m much more interested in spending time with people than worrying about baking and dirtying up every single dish in the kitchen. Here is a super simple Pumpkin Pie creation that lets you serves something special without all the mess.
I ran into Walmart this weekend and picked up a Mrs. Smith’s Pumpkin pie from the freezer section. And everyone knows that pumpkin pie must have Kraft Cool Whip! I grabbed a bag of frozen blueberries and a box of graham crackers and I was ready to get this pie in a jar fixed.
Once I got home it was time to cook up the Mrs. Smith’s Pumpkin Pie!
- Mrs. Smiths Pumpkin Pie
- Kraft Cool Whip
- Graham Crackers
- Cook the Pumpkin Pie according to directions on box.
- Crumble Graham Crackers.
- Once pie is cooled, spoon layers into small jelly jars.
- Layer crushed graham crackers and blueberries.
- Add scoop of Kraft Cool Whip when ready to serve.
Creating the Single Serve Jars
Since we typically do a lot of canning in our household, we always have jars in the garage that are waiting for the next use. I washed out a few of them and started spooning in some of the cooked pumpkin pie.
Tip: You may want to let the pie cool before you add in the layers. But, if you don’t want to wait, go right ahead and spoon in hot pumpkin pie. When the berries thaw and the Cool Whip melts in on top of the warm pie, it will be a yummy ooey-gooey treat in a jar!
Print your Labels
If you have sticky, label paper for your printer, then feel free to use that. But if you don’t, you can just print these simple labels, cut them out and tape them on the side of your jars.

Tip: Tape the labels on the jars before you refrigerate them. Once the jar gets cold, it will be harder for the tape to stick.
