patriotic fruit cobbler

Happy 4th of July! Hope you’re celebrating with family, friends, sunshine and good food. On this day {well, every day, but especially today!} it’s important to remember and thank all of the men and women who have served and continue to serve our country. Here is a nice way you can let current service members know they are appreciated: A Million Thanks letter-writing campaign.

I have a quick dessert recipe to share with you today — it’s a great way to use up delicious summer fruit, and you can make it patriotic if you throw in some strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. Add some whipped cream and you’ve got a red, white, and blue dessert, perfect for a 4th of July barbeque or potluck!

patriotic fruit cobbler

-1 box pie crust mix {I used Jiffy}
-4 cups diced summer fruit {I used blueberries, strawberries, one pear and one apple)
-1 tbsp flour
-1/4 cup sugar
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1 tbsp lemon juice

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a baking dish.

2. Prepare pie crust as directed and press dough into bottom of baking dish in a thin layer.

3. Core and dice the fruit. Gently mix it together with the flour, sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice.

4. Pour fruit on top of pie crust. Bake for 20 minutes, or until fruit is starting to bubble.


Let cool for five minutes, then serve with whipped cream or iced cream.

YUM!

Happy Independence Day!
