While browsing around Kraft, where I found the inspiration for the Firecracker Cupcakes, I spotted this Patriotic Pie. It’s super easy but looks impressive, just the way I like it. And even better…it can be made a couple days ahead and stays great in the fridge.

How festive and it couldn’t be easier!
