Oh what I meant skies, not pies. But yes, it’s almost the 4th of July y’all! And in honor of that I feel the need to help you out a little bit. Trust me, I know the frenzy you feel. Grill recipes, pie recipes, treat recipes, snack recipes, goodness gracious how many times must I visit the Martha Stewart website before I can finish my menu!
But, wait, I’ve been baking for more than 2 years now, I should have some things…
What about some Mixed Berry Boy Bait?
I’m a pretty big fan of blueberries. How great that it’s such a 4th of July classic, eh?
But that doesn’t mean blueberries are all! Check out Lemon Basil Shortbread Hearts. A delicious food to bring for a picnic if you’re one of those people heading out to parks to check out the fireworks this year.
What if you’re going to a park and need picnic food? Well besides shortbread, look at peach crumb bars!
Oh and drinks are on me too in the form of virgin mojitos.
Maybe you’re looking for a summery cake that is just as aesthetically pleasing to the eye as it is to your taste buds? Try a ridiculously simple Summery Fruit Cake.
I feel like I’ve covered most of my summer favorites for baking that you could surely incorporate into your own 4th of July menu. And just some last few options that might interest you:
- Peanut Butter Blondies
- Blueberry Cake Pudding
- Brown Butter Nectarine Buckle
- Brown Butter Blueberry Cookies
- Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes
