Friends, please act surprised and impressed when you receive yours.

Now for the links: Click here, here and here for the nitty gritty, what ifs, and how abouts. Oh, I suggest baking at 400 and they take longer to bake than you'd expect. My crust was a bit raw in places. My 2 year old helped me scoop the filling into the jars. See here.
