Patriotic Dessert

What is more American than apple pie?

A “red, white and blue” berry dessert of course!

Served in a little mason jar for fun and enjoyed in the most beautiful dining room!

or if you want to be a little fancier you can break out a pretty dessert bowl…

…and yes that is a bit of cubed pound cake you spy. Think “trifle” in a personal size.

Production notes

Strawberries were lightly sweetened with honey and mashed just a bit to get them nice and juicy. The whipped cream (homemade) is sweetened with a bit of vanilla and agave. The blueberries didn’t need a thing. The pound cake was purchased and cubed up. The mason jar version could be made ahead ( not too far – but like a couple of hours) and stored with lids on, in the refrigerator till party time.

Or what about using ice cream instead of pound cake?

  1. Desserts don’t have to be complicated (or baked!) to be delicious. This one looks like something my family would enjoy.

      Thanks – we decided to go to Meredith NH on the lake – (less people and cooler weather) and it turned out wonderful – dinner at Church Landing and fireworks over the water! Hope yours was nice as well!
