: FAMIL FEATURES"
Anyone who entertains knows it takes effort to make it look effortless. For those planning to host a dinner

party this holiday season or throughout the year incorporating special touches is part of the fun and adds to your guests' experience.
The next occasion where you plan on entertaining, resist the temptation to delegate bringing a dessert to your guests. Instead, save the best for last by serving up a dessert pie bar as the sweet finale to a wonderful gathering. Follow these easy steps to help bring your dessert bar to life for your next event.


Decadent and decorative dessert pie bar
Create a pie bar that looks as. pretty as it is delicious. Indulge your guests with an easy-to-create pie bar that delivers an unexpected, tempting twist for your event.


Shhhhh ... it can be your little secret
Findirig ways to save time without compromising quality is the hallmark of a savvy host or hostess. With the high-quality ingredients and handmade touches available in today's pre-made pies in the frozen aisle of your local grocery store, your guests will never guess that the flaky crust on their pie isn't homemade when it looks and tastes just like it
is made from scratch. With more than 21 delicious dessert pie varieties, let Marie Callender's be. your extra set of hands in the kitchen and bring signature special touches to your next occasion.


Pie pairings that please
When planning your pie bar, select an assortment ofethree to five pies that bring complementary color, texture and flavor. For a traditional pie bar serve holiday favorites, such as Dutch Apple Pie, Pumpkin Pie and Southern Pecan Pie. Wow your guests with a pie bdrfull of vibrant colors by slicing into the rich Razzleberry Pie, Lattice Cherry Pie, and Peppermint Pie. If you have chocolate lovers on the guest list, satisfy their cravings with a chocolate lover's themed pie bar, serving Chocolate Satii! Pie, Turtle Pie and Peanut Butter Cream Pie.


Tie together with a tag
AOnce your pies and toppings have been creatively displayed on your D ELIG H F G U ES S ITtable, add custom labels that fit your theme so guests can. easily
DR L Ldetermine what the selection includes. Distinguish your pies with
foldable tent labels or tags for each variety served. These can be easyto make and personalize if you are feeling crafty, or purchased at a local paper goods or craft store. Label each topping selection by simply tying a tdg around the martini glass or Mason jar with ribbon.

The time you save on making pies will allow you to savor every delicious moment of the evening with friends and family. For more inspiration on pie pairings, visit www. mariecallendersmeals com.
