Hello summer! Once we hit Memorial Day it’s just one big waiting game for 4th of July which is my second favorite holiday of ever. I have fond memories of heading down to the biggest park in town, fighting for a place to park, and then spending the entire day into the evening wandering the vendor food carts, begging my parents to let me ride in a hot air balloon, and watching the fireworks. Any wonder why the biggest of the big red, white, and blue holidays is my 2nd fave {don’t worry Halloween, I’ll always love you!}. Since I’m far from that park this year I’m kicking off summer patriotic dessert season with these gorgeous and festive patriotic desserts. Enjoy!

These patriotic swirl cookies are perfect for the 4th of July and definitely worth the effort! You'll never believe the secret to getting a perfect swirl when you cut it!

This is such a great round up! I wish Canadians were as patriotic as Americans. Maybe we are, but I don't see an impact in food such as this. Maybe it's because the Canadian flag is red and white. That would just look like a murder scene translated to a bark recipe, wouldn't it? :)

Haha! That was a laugh I needed first thing in the morning. I'll figure out a pretty red and white dessert just for you ;)
