Who doesn’t like to eat food out of a mason jar!? The best part is that these can be made ahead and stored in the freezer for when you need a quick dessert. All you have to do is take off the lid and bake right in the mason jar! Baking a dessert doesn’t get any easier than this! Try using different fruits as they come into season.  Making the miniature sized (125 ml) mason jars is our favourite way to serve these!
