Honestly, who doesn’t enjoy a theme party? It’s so exciting to get dressed up and pretend to be someone else… in some other place… at some other time. A few weeks ago, my family was invited to a friend’s 50s-themed 50th birthday party. The hosts went ALL out; they even rented a juke box!
Look at the creative, edible decorations!
I contributed maple pecan bars to the party. The bars don’t exactly have anything to do with the 50s theme… but no one seemed to care as they gobbled these bars up!
Here’s what I did to make the bars: First I whipped up some pecan pie filling. Then, instead of putting the filling in a pie crust, I put it on top of a shortbread crust and baked it in bar form, not pie form.
