  3. Strawberry & Blueberry Cookie Tart Recipe

The Fourth of July is full of excitement. It’s the quintessential summer holiday, usually spent outdoors with something grilled in one hand and an ice cold drink in the other. As a family, we always went into town and watched the fireworks after a long day of eating, parades and a lots of sun. Of course no Fourth of July is complete without something sweet and this cookie tart hits the spot. It’s a delicious combination of sugar cookie crust with a simple fruit and yogurt topping. Make the crust a day before then assemble the day of and you’re ready to go!

Have a happy Fourth!
