To call this recipe Easy Cherry Pie Stars is really an understatement. If you have the ingredients on hand, this recipe will not take you 30 minutes, and most of that time is spent waiting for the stars to bake! This is a great little meal ender for a last minute get together, and it is wonderful for a large group because it is so easily put together! Of course, I think it’s a natural for the 4th of July also!!
Easy Cherry Pie Stars

makes 10 servings *1 box uncooked Pie Crust *1 can Cherry Pie Filling *2 dozen Blueberries *1 cup Confectioner’s Sugar *1 tablespoon Lemon Juice *extra Confectioner’s Sugar for dusting Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Follow the directions on your box of crust to bring the dough to  room temperature. Cut out your star shapes. I found that I could  fit 10 large stars from 1 round of crust if I utilized all the crust by re rolling. Cut as many small and large stars as you need. Bake in your oven for 8-10 minutes. 
Let cool.
Make lemon drizzle by mixing the confectioner’s sugar and lemon juice. If you think it is too thick, add more juice, a little at a time. If you think it is too thin, add more confectioner’s sugar, a little at a time. Place the big star on your plate and top with a spoon full of cherries. Top the cherries with a small star. Add a few more cherries on top. Tuck in some blueberries for color. Drizzle the lemon drizzle over the top of the cherries and crust. Shake some confectioners sugar over everything! The best thing about this recipe is the stars can be made ahead of time. The cherries couldn’t be any quicker, and the drizzle takes 5 minutes, tops! That gives you a festive, pretty dessert to serve, and you won’t miss any of the fun!! Thanks for joining me today! You might enjoy some of these Patriotic Recipes!

Have a Happy 4th of July!
