Bring the red, white, and blue to your next Fourth of July party with these three summery sweet treats! Easy to make and sure to please, each pie recipe emphasizes the color of the American flag. So show your spirit this Fourth of July by giving these pie recipes a chance to shine!
Red: strawberry pie is the natural choice! Nothing says summer like fresh strawberries. Dorothy Kern at Crazy for Crust has an outstanding Fresh Strawberry Pie recipe that doesn’t use jello or gelatin. Give it a shot!
White: lemon meringue pie is up next! If you don’t have a family recipe to use, try Aunt Tootsie’s Lemon Meringue Pie by Dorothy Kern! This pie may seem daunting but is much easier than it looks. Mmmmmm, lemony goodness!
Blue: it’s got to be blueberry pie, right? Now, you might note that most blueberry pie comes with a crust on top, but not this contest-winning recipe for fresh blueberry pie featured in Taste of Home! In just fifteen minutes, enjoy a beautiful, delicious treat that puts summer-fresh blueberries to work!
If you’re wanting to bring all the colors together in a festive dessert, this Fourth of July Buttermilk Pie brings a classic and combines it with the colorful berries the summer season brings.
If you’re feeling particularly inspired, try making all of them for your next Fourth of July party. Or, divvy each pie up amongst friends or family. We hope these sweet treats bring some fun to your holiday!
Have a very happy and safe Fourth of July!
