Red, White and Blue Cherry Pies
Keep it easy with a boxed pie crust or splurge and get the pre-made stuff from the store. Either way, this recipe will be done in no time and your friends will love the freshness of the berries mixing with the flakiness of the crust. Plus, if you omit the ice cream, these delicious gems become portable – perfect for a party.
Summer Berry Baked Alaska
Again, use those berries while they are in season but this time for a frosty treat like Baked Alaska. Help everyone cool down from the summer heat with the light flavors of raspberries and blackberries topped with the show stopping outer meringue shell.
Red, White and Blue Swirled Cheesecake
A swirl design is always a fun way to jazz up a basic dessert such as cheesecake and the patriotic red and blue will be beautiful mixed against the white of the simple batter.
