When you think about the July 4th holiday, you may think of fireworks, cookouts, and ice cream. I have a new Independence Day treat for you to make this year. I call it: Red, White, and Blue Shortbread!
Shortbread is a creamy, buttery treat that requires very few ingredients. I add a sweet streusel topping for an extra treat.
This recipe can be adjusted if you prefer different flavors of fruit. It is perfect for any holiday, party, or gathering.
