Super Easy Red White and Blue Dessert for the 4th of July

If you follow along, you know that I’m a fan of fruit based bars, desserts, drinks, cocktails, etc. The same is true when I celebrate the red white and blue. So enjoy the 4th with this easy red white and blue dessert, a twist on my super addicting strawberry pie. 😉

As you may know, strawberry pie is my most favorite occasional treat because it reminds me of my childhood.  Since my parents will be joining my sister, the kids and I this 4th of July, I thought I’d up my game a bit by turning it into a true red, white and blue dessert to celebrate our Declaration of independence.  🙂

Strawberry Pie Recipe – Red, White and Blue Edition

Ingredients:

  • 1 frozen pie crust
  • 1 lb of strawberries
  • 1 16oz bag of strawberry glaze
  • 1 can of whipped cream
  • 1 pint of blueberries

Instructions:

  • Remove the frozen pie crust from your freezer and let it sit out to thaw, while you preheat your oven as indicated on the frozen pie crust package.
  • Once your oven is preheated and your crust it thawed, take a fork and prick the bottom and sides of the pie crust to avoid bubbles as it bakes.
  • Place your pie crust in the center of your oven rack and bake it according to the instructions on the frozen pie crust package and/or until golden brown.
  • Once done, let the crust cool and start getting the strawberries ready.
  • Wash your strawberries and a handful of blueberries and let them dry.
  • Once dry, cut off the stems and cut the strawberries in half.

  • Once the pie crust is cool, start placing the strawberries into the cooled pie crust (I like to place them in a circular fashion).
  • Once all strawberries have been placed, cut a corner off your strawberry glaze bag and pour the entire package over the strawberries, making sure all the strawberries are coated evenly.

  • Once coated, grab your blueberries and begin outlining their space on the pie.  I suggest making a 5X5 or 6X6 outline for your blueberry triangle and then filling in the space with blueberries as needed.

  • Next, you need to spray on the whipped cream to enhance the flag design (hopefully your spray can won’t be as flat as mine was).  Start with a line of whipped cream right under your last row of blueberries.  Use it as an anchor for adding the other lines.  Be as creative as you want here.

  • When youÅ•e done decorating your masterpiece, place the pie in the refrigerator for 1-2 hrs. for it to set.
  • Once set, you are ready to enjoy this fabulous red, white and blue dessert!
