We had a wonderful 4th Of July weekend and even got to fit in some adult time!! YAY!! I was so proud of the strawberry pie and sangria I made, that I wanted to make sure to share with you all. Both were very delicious!!
Here is the pie before going into the oven…
I made a basic strawberry pie but added some blueberries on the top left corner for the American Flag blue. I cut strips of pie dough to make the flag stripes and used a christmas star cookie cutter to cut the stars out of the pie dough. Next time I will cut three stars instead of two because it will look more balanced.
We also made some homemade ice cream. It has always been a tradition on my side of the family to make ice cream for the 4th. Since there aren’t very many of us, I used the KitchenAid Mixer Ice Cream Maker Attachment. It works really well and isn’t to difficult as long as you plan ahead for all the freezer time.
Jake approved of his first homemade ice cream tasting!
Until next week, XOXO.
