I do pints because I am cooking for one person. Both pints and quarts process for 20 minutes. Make sure to use a medium or light syrup because the sugar is the preservative for these. I make little mini pies so I don't have a ton of leftover pie(and so I don't have to eat a whole pie in 3-4 days!). I found some 6 inch pie plates on amazon a couple years ago.
