Strawberry pie bars are sure crowd pleasers for your summer party. Bursting with strawberry flavor, these little bars pack a punch.
Hi. My name is Kristan and I am a control freak hostess.
I haven’t always been this way. Well, I take it back. I HAVE always been this way.
My husband, bless him, has learned to just go along with it. There’s no fixing what I’ve got going on here. Your best bet is to get up early the day of a party, take my carefully written out list that is categorized and mapped out according to the store layout, and purchase all items on said list, while I stay home frantically fanning napkins and arranging paper cups into an adorable and impressive pyramid.
And when I say, “purchase all items,” I mean purchase “EXACT items.” Don’t go taking liberties with the brands or deciding that the new “extra super cheesy” flavor looks more fun. That’s a good way to give a girl like me a heart attack. It’s just not done around here. We all know from experience that it doesn’t end well.
I once wrote “French Onion and Ranch Dips” on the grocery list, only for my husband to come home with something different entirely. He then explained that the store didn’t HAVE “French Onion Ranch Dip,” so he decided to just get something else. And then I basically died, because we all know that a party isn’t a party without the two most popular dips in the world.
Welcome to my brain. It’s a sick, sick place.
When it comes to get-togethers, pie is not always the most group-friendly dessert. No one ever wants to the first to cut into it, for one. Which I completely understand-that first slice terrifies me! There are so many things that can happen. Will it stick to the pan? Will it be a mess and crumble all over the place? Will I accidentally-on-purpose cut a slice the size for FOUR slices and then eat it all while everyone silently judges me?
As you can see, bar desserts are really the way to go if you want to avoid fear and heartache. And these strawberry pie bars are perfect for any Summer get-together. A shortbread base, sweet strawberry pie filling, and a creamy whipped cream finish make these festive and delicious!
