Fourth of July Pie

Your classic apple pie might just have some friendly competition this year! We can all agree, there is nothing sweeter than having a nice slice of pie as the fireworks glimmer in the darkened sky. What we also hope to agree on is that it's nice to have options on your dessert spread! While this 4th of July Pie technically might not be considered America's official pie, the bright red strawberries topped with swirls of fluffy, white whipped cream represent two out of three of our country's colors, which makes us believe it deserves a spot at the table. And if that isn't convincing enough, then just give this sweet treat a taste and we bet you'll be sporting a smile as big as America the beautiful herself. Variety is what makes America so great, so let's celebrate that with some 4th of July Pie!
