Little Cherry Tarts to light up your picnic – so easy with phyllo!
A sweet treat based on a firecracker to light up your Fourth of July picnic. Whodda thunk it?
I saw these Smoked Cherry Bombs in this month’s Cooking Light magazine – but I skipped the smoking step – which just seemed too complicated. I also doubled the filling amounts, because c’mon – almond paste whipped with cream cheese! They are fun to serve on a platter – and this recipe achieves the perfect balance of flavor and texture – creamy and crispy all in one bite.
Next to Christmas, the Fourth of July is my favorite holiday of the year. I love the picnics, parades, fireworks – I love it all. And so, I am always on the hunt for recipes that are patriotic. Two from the past - Red White and Blueberry Cookie Tarts, and American Flag Fruit Skewers.
Have fun on the Fourth!
