I had a Pinterest Patriotic fest this weekend. I may pin a lot, but I also do
sometimes make things I pin. This round I made all things Patriotic for our Memorial Day BBQ. All recipes and links can be found on my 4th of July board here
I love all things jello. Must be something from my childhood. I improvised on the white filling than what the recipe called for. I added about 8 ounces of cream cheese to the cool whip, 1/4 c of white sugar and a dash of vanilla. Then I mixed it with my hand mixer until smooth and creamy.
I was on a roll making mini desserts.
Some of my mini cheesecakes caved in the middle so I added some cherry pie filling to the the top
I found that the lattice tops were harder to do on the apple pies, so I only did half that way
I also made fruit salsa, but I probably won’t make it again. The fruit gets all soggy and not so fresh looking very fast.
I really just wanted to try the new spoon maker kit I got to dip the salsa
