I love celebrating Independence day for so many reasons! Even when I was a little girl I would get teary eyed when I sang the Star Spangled Banner or watched Will Smith in Indepence day, lol! I have always been so proud of my country and while we may not be perfect we have been though a lot and always continue to strive for a better tomorrow. And now that both my brother and my brother-in-law are serving in the military it has that much more meaning to me. Im so grateful for this country that I live in and for all those past and future who make all this freedom that I enjoy possible.
I'm proud to be an american.
I hope you enjoy this free printable and your 4th of July celebrations!

Its June and that means fresh cherries everywhere... well at least hear in Utah its cherry picking season!
What do you do with a bowl full of cherries... eat them of course. And after two days of belly aches it is time to eat some more, Lol! While Im a big fan of fresh cherries Ive never been much for cherry pie filling. So that Is why I love this recipe for Cherries N' Cream Pie Bars because you can just use fresh cherries with a little bit of sugar sprinkled on top so it's not overly sweet.
Cherries N' Cream Pie Bars
(preheat oven to 350 f. )
2 cups of fresh cherries pitted (or cherry pie filling)
1 pkg of cream cheese
1 c. sugar
1 egg white
2-3/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
Milk (about 2/3 cup)
1/4 cup sugar
This pie dough recipe is my favorite for pie bars its thicker and more moist than regular pie crust so it gives it a richer texture and taste. But if you don't want to spend the extra time just buy pre made pie dough.
8. Bake until lightly browned, about 40-45 minutes. Let it cool than serve. (I like mine refrigerated and served the next day cold.)
