  1.  Chop and mix fruit and walnuts.
  2.  Add sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Mix well.
  3.  Roll out pastry dough and measure your pie circles. Be sure and use the wide-mouth mason jars for an easier time filling.
  4. Press dough in and fill.
  5.  Measure your top using the mason seal. Either press the top on or fork press it like I did for a rustic look. Cut a a design on the top for venting during baking.
  6. At this point you can put the lid on for freezing, or if baking right away, brush a little heavy cream on the top (optional) and sprinkle a little sugar over the top.
  7.  Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.
