Pie in a jar

I just ran across the most darling idea for a housewarming/new baby gift, or just to have around for yourself: Single-serving pie in a jar (fancy-schmancy lattice optional, though this would be a great time to practice).
Details at the link, but bottom line: make your favorite pie crust and filling, assemble in short, fat half-pint jars, vent the crust, and then freeze until you're ready to use. Bake at 375 for 50-60 minutes.

I'm thinking this would be a great option for when you've gone berry-picking or scored big at the farmer's market and feel like doing something other than preserves.
