Personal Notes:
The syrup is pretty thick when trying to pour it over the packed jars. In order to fill all of the "spaces" I stick the handle of a wooden spoon down in the jar, pour some syrup, then move the spoon to another spot, until I'm satisfied that its full.

I got this recipe from Howie Neider years ago. The pies are just like homemade. Pour a quart jar in a pie crust, dot with butter, top with whatever, and bake!
