FRUITY 4th of July Desserts

July 4th is the perfect time of year to enjoy fruit-themed desserts. Pies are the all-star in this category! You can make full-size pies with stars on top or miniature pies for serving to a crowd. I also love fruit skewers for a healthier dessert option.

This blueberry star pie (above) is my favorite fruity Fourth of July dessert! It’s blueberry but the star technique could easily be used on other pie flavors (cherry, apple, etc) too! Get the recipe for this gorgeous patriotic pie here! Check out more fruity patriotic desserts…

    1. Thank you, Marla! : )

  1. I have been a dedicated fan for who knows how long and say I am trying this but…have yet to do so. I am making something this weekend? What should I make? I am thinking the pie but with strawberries and peaches in a rustic wrap around pizza-ish type shell. Yes I just need to ingredients. Maybe a lemon cake?

    1. All those options sound delicious! I like the strawberries and peaches in a rustic wrap!

  2. Thank you, the cake is beautiful, I’m trying to make it for my sister’s 14th birthday. Hope it will like it, thank you
