Happy 4th of July!!

Looking for something tasty to make on the 4th of July? Try an American Flag Tart!

2 pkgs. refrigerated sugar cookie dough
8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp. butter, softened
2-3 Tbsp. milk
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp. lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet and then press cookie dough into a rectangular shape that is about 1/8″ thick. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges begin to brown. Remove from the oven and cool completely.
While the crust is cooling, mix the cream cheese, butter, milk, powdered sugar and lemon juice in a medium bowl until fluffy. Spread over the cooled cookie.
Arrange the fruit in an American flag design. Blueberries will form the blue field in the upper left hand corner and use the strawberries for the horizontal stripes. Cut into squares to serve.

My oldest two had fun helping me make it too!
