Maybe you have your hot dogs in a row for upcoming Fourth of July festivities, but how’s your dessert game looking? Got a plan? Readers have been practicing for the red-white-and-blue fun, and showcasing their gorgeous, patriotic desserts in some knockout Williams-Sonoma bakeware. Do you have the goods to make your Fourth downright star-spangled? Read on to see how a few smart home bakers are looking forward to this holiday.
1. Mixed Berry Cobbler
Our Staub mini cocottes always look charming, but we rarely see them looking quite so luscious. Theseasidebaker baked up a fruit cobbler so ruby-red and drippy that it looks like a Normal Rockwell painting against the white bakeware. Consider taking advantage of the bounty of seasonal fruit this holiday.
2. Cherry Cobbler
There’s cherry cobbler, and then there’s cherry cobbler. Instagram tastemaker thepreppyhostess made smart use of fluted bakeware for these beauties. Check out our crème brûlée ramekins to produce a similar effect in individual portions, or go big and serve a bigger crowd with our scalloped quiche dishes.
3. Patriotic Pie
It’s tricky to express just how gorgeous food can look when baked in a skillet, so we’re grateful to judy.kim for showing precisely how to do it. Her strawberry rhubarb skillet pie is an exemplary use of our Staub cast-iron skillet, which comes in seven knockout colors and goes right into the oven. (We sort of can’t imagine our Fourth of July without this pie now that we’ve seen it.)
4. Mixed Berry Slab Pie
We salute wifemamafoodie for this genius All-American slab pie. Her bevy of berries includes strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries, and she tops the whole thing with whipped coconut cream. Yum. You’ll want a baking sheet or jelly roll pan for this one, which feeds a group.
5. Mixed Berry Rice Cereal Bars
Why not start the day by celebrating the nation’s independent history? These tasty mixed-berry rice cereal bars from areyoukitchenme should do the trick. Vegan and gluten-free and containing only seven ingredients, they’re a snap to make in our 8-inch square cake pans. Get baking, America!
