Just in case you are like me and wait until the last minute to plan the menu for your 4th of July get-together, I thought I’d show you a few patriotic desserts I’m dying to make this year.
They all look super yummy and highly patriotic. Of course, this only applies if you are in the U.S.A. If you are Canadian and celebrating a belated Canada Day, then just skip the blue parts of the foods.
A Flag Fruit Pizza from Sabby In Suburbia (so photogenic)
A Red, White and Blue Trifle from Skinny Taste (3-4 Weight Watchers points for those that know what points are)
These Spangled Sandwich Pops originally from Disney Family Fun would be ridiculously easy to make. Buy ice cream sandwiches, roll them in sprinkles and insert popsicle stick. BOOM, you’re done!
Firecracker Bundt Cake from Cooking With Sugar (can’t you picture lit sparklers stuck on the top of this)
Who doesn’t like a 4th Of July Pinwheel, especially these edible ones from Home Cooking Memories!
And Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats from Glorious Treats (not red, white and blue, but still pretty darn picnic worthy)
And a bonus for you is my Bluebbery Crostata. These pies are SO EASY to make and so impressive at the same time!
Who wants to bet that I just buy an apple pie from the grocery store, slap it into my fancy star spangled pie pan and try to pass it off as homemade?
That’s what Betsy Ross would have done.
With all those bombs bursting in air, she wouldn’t have had time to make a pie from scratch either.
