Favorite 4th of July Dessert!

Sunday, June 28, 2015 9:43 PM | Deleted user

My mom has made this dessert for the 4th of July for as long as I can remember, and I've made it a tradition to make with my kids each year also.  It's easy for little hands to help with, (somewhat) healthy, and visually on theme!


  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Sugar (optional)
  • Bisquick
  • Milk
  • Whipped Cream


  1. Wash, chop, and combine the strawberries and blueberries.  Sprinkle with sugar, if desired.  Set aside.
  2. Follow Bisquick recipe for biscuits (or make your own favorite kind!) to make the dough. 
  3. After rolling out dough, use a star shaped cookie cutter to form the biscuits and cook as directed.  Tip: don’t make the biscuits too thin—it’s best for them to be about an inch thick when done.
  4. After biscuits have cooled, slice them in half.
  5. To plate, place a biscuit open faced on a plate.  Spoon fruit mixture on top of the bottom side, top with whipped cream, and then put the top back on.  Optional: red, white, and blue tooth picks to hold it all together!
