JULY 4th: American Flag Pie Top

While we just said that our favorite pie topping is streusel (crumb topping), here’s something special for July 4th.

You can buy or bake an open face pie (no top crust) or a tart, and decorate it as the American Flag.

All you need to decorate are:

  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Whipped Cream
  •  
    Older children can do the decorating, and everyone can enjoy a piece of “grand old pie.”

    If you’ve purchased the pie, the dessert can be ready in 10 minutes!

    For those who don’t know the lyrics/tune to George M. Cohan’s classic, “You’re a Grand Old Flag,” practice on You Tube.

    A NOTE ABOUT WHIPPED CREAM

    If you use an aerosol whipped cream like Reddi-Wip, the air will deflate much sooner than if you whip your own stabilized whipped cream.

    Even if you don’t stabilize the whipped cream, your own beater-whipped cream will stay fluffy longer. You don’t need to create whipped cream stars, which the Reddi-Wip nozzle enables. Instead, just emulate the real white bars of the flag, and use one long line of whipped cream in-between the rows of strawberries.
