While standard pie sizes are available   and equally delicious, Shut Ur Pie Hole specializes in individual pies in   little mason jars in a variety of flavours. The concept came to Heather when   she was shopping for baking supplies one afternoon. She noticed decorative   mason jars and wondered if she could use them instead of pie plates.
