Patriotic Cookies

The 4th of July is a holiday that I really enjoy. We get up at 5:30am and go see hot air balloons take off. Afterward we go to a parade and later we have a party at my Grandmas house and do fireworks. The last few years the holidays have gotten even better because our kids enjoy them too. They especially enjoy this holiday cause of all the fun and family.

I've also started to try a bunch of fun recipes. So over the next week or so I'll be sharing them with you so you'll have fun things to make at your 4th of July parties, starting out with this delicious cookie. Its easy but the effect is dramatic! People will be so impressed!

Patriotic Cookies
Recipe Source: Nestle.com

1- 16.5oz pkg refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Dough
1- 8 oz pkg Cream Cheese, at room temp
1/3 cup Granulated Sugar
24 Strawberries, sliced
3/4 cup Blueberries

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Between 2 pieces of parchment paper roll the cookie dough until its 1/4 inch thick. Refrigerate dough for 10 minutes. Remove the top piece of parchment paper. Using a 3-inch star cookie cutter cut the cookie dough. Transfer to an ungreased cookie sheet. Roll remaining dough to 1/4-inch thickness, refrigerate dough for 10 minutes, and cut additional stars.

3. Bake for about 10 or until golden brown. While the cookies are hot, reshape the edges of each star with knife. Let cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes. Place on a wire rack to cool completely.

4. Beat the cream cheese and sugar in small mixer bowl until fluffy. Spread onto cooled cookies. Place strawberry slices onto each cookie pointing outward. Put a dollop of the cream cheese mixture onto the strawberries and place about 5 blueberries in center of each cookie.
