Memorial Day is almost upon us and before we turn around Fourth of July will be here too! Are you hosting a Cook-Out or maybe heading to a Potluck? I have a fun, easy dessert for you to whip up…Patriotic Pie Squares.

When I first spotted the Berry-Lemon Cheesecake Squares over at Pillsbury, I thought they would be perfect to add to our Memorial Day Cook-Out, however…we really aren’t crazy about cheesecake, so I switched them up to fit our taste.

We loved them, but the best part is you can bake the pie crust ahead of time, cut the fruit and in minutes you can put together these Patriotic Pie Squares to enjoy at your get-together.
