4th of July Treats

I love the 4th of July!
What an amazing holiday
to celebrate our great country.
We have so many things to be grateful for,
and I am especially grateful for those
who have served our country.

I have a brother in the Marines
who has been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan,
so this holiday is very near and dear to my heart.

I love all the festivities of the 4th...
fireworks, parades, BBQs,
and I especially love seeing our flag everywhere!

So, every year I try to come up with a new
red, white, and blue dessert.

This year, I made some simple sugar cookie stars.
All I did was take a package of sugar cookie dough
(I used Pillsbury)
and baked the cookies according to package directions.
While the cookies were cooling,
I beat 1 pkg (8 oz) of softened cream cheese,
1/4 cup of sugar, 
and 1/2 tsp. of vanilla
in a bowl until well blended.

After the cookies were cooled completely,
I spread the cream cheese mixture over the top
and placed the sliced strawberries and blueberries on top.

Super easy and super sweet!
I hope you all have a fantastic 4th of July!
