Fourth of July Pies Your Family Will Love

The Fourth of July is next week and, if you’re anything like me, you’ve been counting the days and planning your menu for weeks.  You’ve got your red, white, and blue best picked out, your grocery list made, and your flag ready to hang.  

If you’re not like me, no worries.  I’ve got you covered in the dessert department.  After all, what’s more American than a slice of star-spangled apple pie?

If Apple pie isn’t your thing, or if you’re looking for something a bit different, you’ll love this bumbleberry pie.  With blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, apple, and rhubarb, it’s the ultimate sweet-tart combination with a little bit of something for everyone.

This blackberry-blueberry pie is another solid choice to wow your family and friends.  With both fruits in peak season, there simply isn’t a better time to try this recipe out.

Of course, what would a piece of Fourth of July pie be without a big scoop of homemade ice cream?  I’ve made plenty of ice cream, but in my book, nothing beats this Oklahoma farm-style ice cream.  It’s just like the kind I made and ate with my mom, Mammo, and Pappo as a little girl in Oklahoma and just one bite is guaranteed to take me right back.

Happy (almost) Fourth of July, readers!  Here’s to family, friends, fireworks, and plenty of tasty food!

    Great memories of eating this ice cream in OKlahoma with my beautiful daughter and my parents. We were probably at the lake which was followed by fireworks at the park. And, of course, the sparkler flag on the outfield fence. Thanks for the memories. Yummy.
