To make these red, white and blue patriotic cookies, all you have to do is bake sugar cookies, ice them with your favorite frosting, then decorate them with a strawberry slice and a few blueberries.

Directions

This is such a simple recipe because it takes a shortcut and uses store-bought sugar cookie dough. Of course, you can always make your own sugar cookies.

Ingredients

  • 1 package sugar cookie dough – I used precut, package of 24
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 T powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8-10 strawberries
  • 36 blueberries
Pillsbury sugar cookie packaged dough, blueberries in a white bowl, strawberries in a white bowl, and clear glass bowls of powdered sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Divide cookie dough into 24 equal pieces and place 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet. You will likely need two cookie sheets.

Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven and let cool for at least 30 minutes.

While cookies are cooling, rinse and remove the stems from the strawberries. Then cut off the sides, and slice the remaining strawberry into 2-3 slices.

In a large bowl or bowl of a stand mixer, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla on high for 2-3 minutes, until creamy.

    1. Thank you so much for your prayers! I am feeling better and better with each passing day. Looking forward to serving these cookies Memorial DAy weekend.

  4. Hi Paula, I didn’t know your reply to my comment was sent to my inbox. That was so kind of you, it really made my day!!! I was having a lousy day. I’m getting our house ready to put on the market and it’s getting on my nerves. I can’t wait to get back to NC. I’ll be searching for a home to buy near Winston-Salem where we lived before. You and I will be neighbors. It’s already getting hot here in Southeastern PA. Have a great week on the lake!

    1. Good luck with your house sale. I’ve only been to Winston Salem once and I enjoyed it so much. What a great place to live.

  5. How perfect! I love the simplicity and yet I know they are delicious! My students always made the giant cookie version. Love this one so much better! Thanks for your inspiration!

    1. I can picture your students having fun making the giant cookie version and then getting to eat it. I’m looking forward to serving these Memorial Day weekend.

  6. My son and I pick up these cookies sometimes on our shopping runs. He says “Pillsdoughbury” and I don’t correct him- it’s one of those things that marks time and I will be sad when he starts to say it correctly. Anyway, this would be a healthy alternative to the sprinkles we usually use ha ha! Thanks for sharing.

    1. It is so cute that your son says “Pillsdoughbury”!! I am looking forward to serving these Memorial Day weekend.

  7. Girl… when are you fitting in these posts and photography shoots?! You are amazing, and the RWB desserts are perfect! These would be so fun to make with the kids, too! Pinned!

    1. Thank you, Karolyn! I am so glad that I prepared ahead of time and purchased a wig, a ballcap with hair attached, and a giant pile of bandanas in a rainbow of colors. It was strange to see the shape of my head for the first time. Now I am examining my scalp daily to see if any hair is starting to grow. It isn’t but hopefully I will see some growth soon.

  8. These look so yummy! And I could even say they are healthy 😉 Does that parchment paper have a grid on it?? That’s so smart! Pinned this to my recipe board!

    1. Fruit is healthy! And the cookies have healthy stuff in them like eggs and flour. I can justify anything! The grid on the parchment paper is super handy.
