Red, White and Blue Dessert

Serves 12-18


11 oz. fresh or frozen blueberries

1/2 c. sugar

1/2 c. water

1 pkg. brownie mix, made to specifications on box

1 pkg. sugar cookie mix

16 oz. strawberries, rinsed and sliced

Whipped cream


In a saucepan combine blueberries, sugar and water. Bring to a low boil; maintain until mixture has reduced in half its volume, stirring occasionally.

Make brownies according to package directions.

Prepare sugar cookie dough according to directions for "rolled out cookies." Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface until 1/4" thick. Using a star-shaped cookie cutter, cut stars out of dough. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until cookies are just beginning to turn golden.

To serve: place a brownie square on a plate, top with whipped cream and strawberries. Add a star cookie (or two!) on top and spoon a "river" of blueberries along the side of the brownie.
