Happy 4th of July 2016

Friday, July 1, 2016

Hello blogging friends.  The 4th of July will soon be here.  I have only a few decorations displayed for the holiday and below you can see them.

I went to the Dollar Tree store and found the bow I have on my door, the flag in my flower pot, and the cute star decorations.  I have two of the star decorations displayed on either side of my mantel.  I hope to add more to my collection for next year. :)

Do you decorate for the 4th of July?




A while ago I shared with you a simple recipe for apple pie.  I decided to share this easy and delicious apple pie recipe with you again.  

This is the perfect dessert to bake for any bbq, party, or summer entertaining.  I hope you enjoy this apple pie as much as my family!  




Semi Homemade Apple Pie 

Ingredients:

1 can Duncan Hines Comstock More Fruit Apple Filling
1 box Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
1 egg
1 dash of milk

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.  Unroll pie crusts and press crust into pie plate.  Fill crust with 1 can of apple pie filling.  Place pie crust on top of apple pie filling.  Press down edges of pie crust.  Lightly beat egg with a dash of milk.  Brush egg mixture onto the edges and top of the pie.  Place pie on baking sheet and bake 25 to 30 minutes or until crusts are golden brown and fruit is bubbling.

Done.

**  You can use any pie filling you like such as blueberry, cherry, and peach.



For all of my American blog friends that celebrate the 4th of July, wishing you all a happy and safe holiday!

Jess and I will see you all back here on Monday for Cooking and Crafting with J & J Link Up!

  1. Happy 4th to you, too, Julie. Those pie fillings have come a long, long way from what they were years ago. Apple pie sounds good to me- would love a piece with my coffee this morning. xo Diana

  2. That apple pie looks so yummy! We host a large cook-out at our lake home for our church, so we decorate right much. If not for that, my 4th of July decorations would probably be just a few outdoor items and flags! Hope you and your family have a wonderful 4th of July Weekend! :) ~Rhonda

  3. I love the Dollar Tree! I can always find something interesting there. And hey, Julie you stole my pie recipe.lol. I use two cans of filling instead of one. And those Pillsbury Pie Crusts are life savers. I never can get my crust to turn out like i want it to!

  5. I put up my patriotic decor for Memorial Day and leave it up through Labor Day. It's perfect for summer. We do celebrate a bit on July 4th but it's usually low key. We go to our town's parade and maybe do some cooking on the grill at home. I hope you enjoy your weekend!

  14. Happy 4th to you, too, Julie! I don't really decorate for the 4th, but I did stick a couple of little flags in a flower pot, hoping to do double duty by keeping the squirrels out, and being patriotic! Apple pie and America -- a perfect duo!
