I made a couple dishes to celebrate the 4th of July for a pre-4th of July cookout last night.
My standard Red, White and Blue Cookie Cake....
-shape some slice and bake sugar cookie dough into a rectangle and cook it (it will take longer to cook since it's one big cookie)
-mix together a brick of cream cheese with some powdered sugar (1/2-1 cups)
-then mix in a half a small tub of whipped topping
-spread it over the cooled cookie and then top with red and blue berries
Caprese Salad Skewers...
-marinate cherry tomatoes and mini mozzarella balls (bocconcini) in a little bit of olive oil, garlic salt and red pepper flakes (for a couple hours)
-then thread halved tomatoes, mozzarella balls, and fresh basil leaves onto wooden skewers
-drizzle with sea salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar
Happy 4th of July!
