This year for the 4th, I couldn't miss the opportunity to create some sweets to celebrate this "sweet land of liberty"! Thus, I got to baking and created my "Stars & Stripes" sugar cookie collection that of course features a lot of red, white, and blue....and stars and stripes! Among my favorites that I created were Uncle Sam, the top hat, and the good ol' United States of America with the words "Let Freedom Ring" written across the surface. But wouldn't you know, my kids took a liking to the "Popsicles" that I made with real wooden sticks (though with this heat, I could use a real popsicle right about now)!
Have a happy and safe Independence Day!
