Patriotic Fruit Pizza

Rating: 4.5 stars 26
This is a fun recipe for the 4th of July holiday! Fresh fruit is a hit on desserts during the summer months! Making this dessert is as fun as eating it! This recipe feeds a lot, but the leftovers are only good a day or two.

This snack cake is so delicious that my family can eat the entire batch in one day! Very easy and moist.

No Skill Fruit Tart

Rating: 4 stars 38
Just like a seasonal fruit pie--wonderful for people who have trouble making the perfect crust. My favorite is blackberries with peaches, but you can use pretty much any seasonal fruit that you love. This one's a no-brainer!

Barbequed Pineapple

Rating: 4.5 stars 86
Barbecued Pineapple! Serve in a bowl or a banana boat with pineapple on either side and a scoop of ice cream or two on top and drizzled with juice glaze. You may substitute juice (1/2 cup) for the sugar and rum part of the marinade.

Strawberry Pie
Rating: 4.5 stars 1248

Half of this pie's strawberries are arranged in a baked pastry shell, and the other half are crushed and cooked until thick and bubbly. This lovely glaze is then poured over the whole berries in the pastry shell. Chill this pie for several hours and serve it with mounds of whipped cream.
