I don’t know about you guys, but pie brings a feeling of togetherness and sharing when I think of it. I know that most people think of pies for Thanksgiving, but I just think of friends and family. I don’t think I’ve ever eaten a pie by myself. Not because I couldn’t eat the whole thing myself…because lets be honest, I could! But because eating a pie should be a community thing! Call me crazy, but if someone were to bring a pie to my house unexpectedly, I would probably call over a neighbor or two to eat it with me!
I have a fun tutorial to share today on a super cheap and easy way to put together pie stands that can be used at your next party; a pie party perhaps!
I got $1 plates and either $1 candle holders or a simple $1 clear glass cup that went well with one another. Other than those all you need is a hot glue gun to put the stands together.
Place a small bead of hot glue on the edge of the glass or candle holder then attach it to the very center of the back of your plate.
Once in place, load that sucker up with more glue. All the way around it to really hold it in place. Then let it dry and harden in place upside down. Don’t stand it up for at least an hour.
Now it’s ready to make its debut at the next dinner or dessert party!!
Having the pie bar at our house the other night was so much fun. I made Marie Callender’s® Dessert Pies Dutch Apple and Razzleberry Pies. This is a perfect way to have a mix and mingle with friends and family. I served them with small ramekins and glass jars. The best part is that it made them super simple to mix. I made sure to get pies that would compliment one another.
And want an easy tip for when you are cooking? About 20 minutes before the end of baking, wrap some foil around the edges of your crust. It’ll keep the crust from burning while the center finishes cooking.
And you can pick up everything you need at Walmart. So run and grab yourself some pies, Reddi Wip and any other toppings you want to throw your own pie bar party. Or even do a pie drop on an un-expecting friend or neighbor! It’ll make someone’s day.
