Fourth of July includes cookouts, family time, summer activities and... omg we forgot about the DESSERT!
If we are being totally honest we forgot about cute patriotic desserts this year and maybe you have too! Cute and summery desserts at a fourth of July party adds that finishing touch. Don't fret: we threw together two last minute, easy as cake and tasty as heaven recipes that literally take 10 minutes each. Another plus? Minimal dishes which means minimal clean-up which means minimal mess. You're welcome ;)
Patriotic Berry Trifle
1 angel food cake (buy it premade in the bakery section at the grocery store!!)
2 cans Redi Whip
2 pints strawberries
2 pints blueberries
Directions: Rip up the angel food cake into bite size pieces and layer away!! First layer consists of angel food cake, blueberries/strawberries, and whip cream. Repeat steps as needed.
Cherry Lemon Icebox Pie
1 9-in graham cracker pie crust
1 8oz can of Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 can Reddi Whip
1 14oz can cherry pie filling
Directions: Mix the Eagle Brand, vanilla and lemon juice. Whisk until it thickens and then pour into the chilled pie crust. Chill for an hour or so, throw some Redi Whip on the top, pour over the cherry pie filling and wah-lah!
Hope these recipes help! Let us know how they turned out!!
