With Independence Day just around the corner, there’s only one thing we’re all thinking about…FOOD! Okay, okay, we should be thinking about America, but as the world’s most gluttonous country they’re basically one in the same, right? On this patriotic holiday, we’ve decided to celebrate our favorite American hero, Captain America!
Now there are many iconic symbols who represent America, including Uncle Sam, the Statue of Liberty, Rosie the Riveter, Bald Eagles, and even McDonalds, let’s be real here. But Rogers is one in particular that I think holds a special place in all of our hearts, a man whose name makes crowds cheer, makes men shout “‘MURICA” at the top of their lungs, and, well, makes the ladies swoon.
And that, ladies and gents, is why he’s the star spangled man with a plan. His iconic stars and stripes shield can be recognized anywhere, so we thought what better way to celebrate America’s independence than with a delicious holiday pie in the shape of our Captain’s patriotic shield? And no, there’s no “fondue” included in this recipe, despite my very strong urge to do so.
Here’s the recipe:
2 pie crust rolls
2 cans strawberry pie filling
1 can blueberry pie filling
1 cup fresh strawberries
1/3 cup fresh blueberries
Whip this baby out at your 4th of July party and serve!
