You can’t have a Fourth of July celebration without pie. That’s like having peanut butter without jelly or milk without cookies! There is nothing better than having a giant slice of pie after a day of being outdoors, having yummy BBQ food, and relaxing with family and friends. With so many different kinds of pie out there, it can be hard to try and narrow down which ones are the best, or at least, which ones to have for the Fourth of July. Don’t worry, I got you covered!
#5 – Blueberry Pie
You just can’t go wrong with a fruit pie, I’m convinced. Blueberry pie is a perfect pie for your Fourth of July because it’s fresh, not overly sweet, and overall delicious. Plus, it’s one of the colors of the American flag so you get extra points for being patriotic!
#4 – Chocolate Cream Pie
When you combine chocolate and pie together, magic happens. Another favorite pie of mine is chocolate cream pie, there’s just so much deliciousness in this dessert. For this one, creamy chocolate custard is put into a yummy pie crust. You’ll be seeing extra stars for this star-spangled dessert!
#3 – Cherry Pie
Next to apple pie, cherry pie is another American staple dessert. Fresh cherries are cooked down with sugar to make a delectable filling, which is then baked in a fluffy and flaky crust.
#2 – Banana Cream Pie
Banana cream pie is perhaps my all time favorite dessert. I absolutely love bananas and banana flavor, so if that is something you enjoy as well, this dessert is for you. Bananas are mixed into a creamy, sweet custard and put into a graham cracker crust. Can you say yum?
#1 – Apple Pie
Apple pie is the quintessential American dessert. It is comforting, simple, and delicious. Fresh apples with a sugary, cinnamon syrup are baked into a delicious, flaky crust. Serve your pie warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you’ll be in heaven.
Enjoy these scrumptious pies along with your Fourth of July BBQ for a perfect holiday celebration! For some ideas on BBQ sides, check out another article of mine, here!
