4th of July Desserts!

Good morning! The rain has stopped, for now, and hopefully we will see a little sun. I am not complaining because frankly I do not mind the rain on a work day, but I would like to see the sun and fireworks over the 4th of July.

Slab Apple Pie Made by Me from my grandmothers recipe. RECIPE HERE

As I mentioned yesterday I love barbeque's, and one of my favorite things to eat in addition to all of the fixings is dessert.

 I have a huge family and when they get together there are so many fabulous desserts, many from my grandmothers recipes, that is it is hard to choose between the slab apple cake, the eclair pastry, the German chocolate cake and too many more to mention.

  1. Hi, I had already decided to finish my baking hiatus this weekend, my son, who is currently having chemotherapy is flying down with his family for a visit this weekend. Of course I've arranged a family dinner, and your grandmothers slab apple pie will be a perfect partner to the casseroles I am making. Nice and warm on a cold winters night, I might have to bake a couple of those chocolate slices as well. Enjoy your 4th July celebrations.

  2. Elizabeth, All of those desserts look fantastic, but the one's made by you look the best! Happy 4th...Mary

  3. OK now my greek yogurt isn't looking all that Since it's mister mans choice of desserts and thanfully he always wants something with fruit, I'm making cheesecake blueberry bars with our own fresh picked berries. I can't wait to try a few of these desserts pictured.

    Still raining in New England and we have humidity since this is coming from the south so please make it stop on your end!


  4. Wow Elizabeth! These ALL look SO good. The cakes, apple pie, all the berries.. I think I'll be making several here. We will be traveling for a few days so I won't be doing much cooking .. I'll be the recipient this time;) Enjoy your long weekend. xxL

  5. Good Morning, dear friend!!
    I truly hope you have clear skies on the 4th...fireworks are a must! :)
    All of these are so yummy...but like you, Elizabeth, I must have my chocolate fix...although your mint ice cream and the blueberries are calling my name as well...
    Enjoy the holiday, chere amie!!!
    Love and hugs,
    - Irina
