Blueberry Shortcake for 4th of July

29 Jun

In honor of the upcoming 4th of July festivities, we wanted to make something Red,White & Blue. What we came up with was Blueberry (blue) Shortcake (white) with Whip Cream (red). It was both yummy and festive.

My Kids Make Blueberry Shortcake, and yours can too! Check out how:

The recipe we used for shortcake was adapted from this recipe on “Eggs On Sunday“. I left out the chocolate chunks (although I have made it with them before and it is GREAT).

We made our shortcake into star shapes (in honor of 4th of July) by using a star shaped cookie cutter. Piled on tons of blueberries, loaded on red whip cream, and there you have it: RED, WHITE & BLUE.

    Looks very yummy to me. I think I may have to make some of those myself this weekend. Great idea, thanks.

    Great job Silas! I especially liked your technique with the smashing and flipping the dough. What a fun dessert!

    YUM! I learned a couple things from this video, including how you can use the dough masher thing to mix in the butter, and putting the dough between parchment or wax paper to roll it out. You are teaching us so much Silas!

    Thanks for sharing this dessert with Curtis and I – we thought it was delicious!

    Curtis likes the festive colors, and Silas’ spoon-licking technique :)
