Fantastic Fourth Food

I think we’d all agree the weather has been interesting recently. (Maybe ‘interesting’ isn’t even the right word to use.) Since we don’t know what the holiday weather will hold, let’s find some creative juice and put together some fun things for the 4th. Check out these easy and simple ideas below.

¼ c. sugar
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
½ c. butter
1 egg, beaten
2/3 c. milk
2 pints blueberries
2 pints strawberries, hulled and halved
3 Tbsp. sugar
2 c. heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla
Stir dry ingredients together. Cut in butter until it resembles coarse crumbs; add egg and milk. Stir until just moistened. Bake in greased 8-inch round pan at 400° for 15 to 20 minutes.
