4th of July Flag Dessert
We made this flag dessert to take to a friends house that is having a July 4th party and thought we would share it with you! We put a couple of no bake cream cheese pie recipes together and came up with this to fit in a 9x13 dish. We used 2 packages of softened cream cheese, 1 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk, 1 tub of whipped cream, 1 can of cherry pie filling, 1 can of blueberry pie filling, fresh blueberries, 1/3 cup of lemon juice, 2 cups of graham cracker crumbs, and 1 1/2 sticks of butter.
We mixed our graham cracker crumbs with the melted butter. Press into the pan and bake at 350 for 8 min. Let that cool. Beat together the cream cheese, condensed milk, 1 cup of whipped cream, and lemon juice. Spread that onto the cooled crust.
Line fresh blueberries in the left corner to make the edge. Fill with the canned blueberry pie filling. Put fresh blueberries on top. We would have just used the filling, but it looked purple. Carefully spoon on the cherry filling to make stripes. Take the rest of your whipped cream and spoon that in between the cherry filling. We happened to have white dot sprinkles so we used those for the stars. You could just use the whipped cream for that as well or any other white sprinkles you have.
This turned out so pretty and it tastes great!
We hope that you have a wonderful and safe 4th of July!!!
