Soldiers have given life and limb to provide us with the freedom to grill hamburgers, toss coleslaw and bake pies. For this week’s #SundaySupper Movement I bring you my Red, White and Blue Cherry Pie.

The only thing more American than Cherry Pie is Apple Pie, but Red, White and Blue Cherry Pie takes things to another level. I used canned cherry pie filling because I was short on time, but you can make a simple cherry pie filling from scratch.

Simply combine 4 cups pitted cherries, 1 cup sugar and 1/4 cup corn starch.

4th of July Pie

I also used bottled cookie frosting because it is the perfect consistency, but you can make your own by stirring together powdered sugar and milk until it is a thick, but spreadable thickness. Blueberries, however, can not be substituted. (That was my attempt at humor, hehehehe.)

If you do nothing else this Memorial Day, please take a few moments to honor each and every person in the armed forces.

Here are more patriotic themed recipes:

Tools for making this easy 4th of July dessert:

Cherry Pitter– I used to think this was an excessive gadget I didn’t need. I was wrong.

Pie Plates– I think every kitchen should have at least three shallow dishes or pie plates for the process of breading and frying. You can also bake pies in them! Hehe.

Rolling Mat– For rolling out any dough or cookies or just protecting your counters and work space!
