Fourth of July Desserts

Friday, July 05, 2013

At our house yesterday, we celebrated Fourth of July along with my youngest brother's birthday. His birthday is July 3rd so we always joke that the country got his birthday a day late with the fireworks and festivities. Not wanting to take away from his birthday celebration, I created desserts that combined classic American flavors with a birthday flair.

The Triple Berry Layered Lemon Cream Cake was the perfect combination of having a birthday cake for Mike plus a Fourth of July theme. And the Apple Pie Cookies were a quintessentially Americana recipe that I had pinned from Pinterest awhile ago that I had been dying to try out. Perfect for Fourth of July, no?

I can say with confidence that both recipes are a cinch (trust me on this) and are aaamazing. I followed both recipes to a T and did not have any disappointed guests. I tried to get as many photos of the process for both, but it was a little difficult, especially with the Apple Pie Cookies, because it got a little messy. Hope you all had a great Fourth! Enjoy!
