I know, I know. You’re probably getting beaten over the head with patriotic recipes right about now (and I’m not helping anything with this post — what can I say, I like to help a reader out!). The good thing about this particular 4th of July recipe though: Four ingredients. Count ‘em: four (and a little butter, of course).
So there you have it. Your contribution to the inevitable July 4th cookout, ready to go in about 15-20 minutes and only consisting of four ingredients. This can be dessert, this can be appetizer, this can be the appetizer before the appetizers. Happy long weekend, friends!
American Flag Berry and Brie Appetizers (makes 14-16 flags)
1 container puff pastry, defrosted per the container’s instructions
1/2 pound strawberries, thinly sliced
1/2 cup blueberries, halved
1 wedge Brie, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons melted butter
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Flour your prep surface and carefully roll out the pastry into a large rectangle. Use a pizza cutter to cut the pastry into rectangles and transfer to a cooking sprayed baking sheet. Carefully layer two pieces of Brie on each rectangle, followed by strawberry slivers and blueberries made out to look like the flag. Brush the edges of the pastry with melted butter. Bake for 15 minutes or so, watching carefully, until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and cook slightly before serving.
