This giant frosted cookie is a must-have for Fourth of July celebrating.

ingredients

  • 1 tube (18 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough (see note)
  • 2 packages (one 8 ounces, one 3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 cups quartered fresh strawberries

directions

Press cookie dough into a greased 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice until smooth. Set aside 1/4 cup.

Spread remaining cream cheese mixture over crust. Decorate with blueberries and strawberries to resemble a flag.

Cut a small hole in a corner of a pastry or plastic bag. Insert star tip #16. Fill with reserved cream cheese mixture. Beginning in one corner, pipe stars in the spaces between the blueberries.

Note: 2 cups of any sugar cookie dough can be substituted for the refrigerated dough.
