The 4th of July is only days away and my family is so excited that they can hardly stand themselves! We’ve been making some 4th of July treats and 4th of July crafts the last few days to get us even more in the spirit. These American Flag Inspired Cheesecake Squares are a quick and easy 4th of July dessert for any Independence Day get together!
American Flag Inspired Cheesecake Squares
- 1 package of no bake cheesecake – you could make homemade cheesecake if you wanted to but I wanted quick and easy
- fresh blue berries
- cherry preserves
- piping bag fitted with small round tip
How To Make This Easy 4th of July Dessert:
Bake the cheesecake according to instructions but bake in an 8″ square pan rather than a round pan.
Allow the cheesecake to chill until firm.
Cut the cheesecake into rectangular pieces, approximately 2″ x 3″.
Place 3 blue berries in the upper left corner of each cheesecake square.
Use the piping bag filled with cherry preserves to add red stripes to each “flag”.
Return to the refrigerator until ready to serve!
This easy 4th of July dessert is a really yummy and super fun alternative to the usual 4th of July treats and no one will guess how simple they were to make!
