Easy Cherry Pie Stars

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!!

pie crust, cutting out, ready made crust
 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.

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 cherries couldn't be any quicker, and the drizzle takes 5 minutes, tops!
