As American As Apple Pie -Patriotic Pie Decorating Ideas

My son is a good sport, even though this was his birthday pie he didn't mind sharing the theme with the 4th of July! Truthfully, my whole family has been very supportive of my bloggy shenanigans and I do sincerely thank them:@) I wanted to do a round up of easy ~and some more involved~ ideas to help make a festively decorated Patriotic Pie for this holiday weekend. This flag pie came together fairly quickly.

One of the easiest decorations, yet has a big impact. Use a pizza cutter on the dough. Rhu-Berry Pie HERE.
This would look amazing with a cherry pie!

Much more work: Forever May She Wave Pie HERE.

Using cookie cutters is one of the easiest ways to decorate the top of a pie or cobbler HERE.

While I wasn't happy with the filling in this pie, I do still love the idea of decorating a graham cracker crust HERE.

My first attempt at piping meringue, stars and stripes (or a starfish throwing water balls???) A true bloggy blooper... 
But the pie is great! I will be revisiting this decorating idea HERE.

And I see Williams-Sonoma has a fun cutter out this year HERE...
I'd be glad to take it for a test drive if they'd like to send me one for a review-she said shamelessly:@)

Bake up something special and have a happy day:@)


  1. love when you decorate pies! loved the starfish hurler, too!

  2. Great looking pies. I do love pie and haven't had any in a long time.

    hugs, Linda

  3. I love those pies, as hubby adores pies, specially chicken pot pie and pineapple! Love the fun and patriotic patterns. Your son is a good sport for sure, happy birthday to him.
    My family is supportive with my 'blogging shenanigans' too, lol!
    Have a great week ahead.

  4. I am getting ready to attempt Louisiana Meat Pies! Wish me luck!

  5. Hi Lynn, I love all these, and I agree with you that the Williams Sonoma pie cutter looks like fun. :) Truthfully, I like the decorated meringue pie; I really didn't know it was a blooper. All of these are great, Lynn, and I know your recipes are too! Happy Birthday to your son -- my Dad's is July 3rd.

    Enjoy your day, Lynn!

    Big hugs,

    Denise at Forest Manor

  6. Lynn, your pies are all patriotic and perfect for any celebration here in America. Clever of WS to come out with those pie crust cutters. The meringue pie is my favorite. Very, very clever!!!

  7. I know all about 'Blogging shenanigans' :-) Your pies are mouth watering.

  8. Well I'd sayJay was happy with his special apple pie, Lynn. All your pies are making me hungry right now. I'll have to get out my star cookie cutter and get busy with some of your ideas. I sure hope WS hears your pleas for test driving those fun cutters.

  9. Lynn, I love your pie round up for the 4th! I can't imagine any of your family or boys complaining about sampling your sweet treats for any occasion, blogging shenanigans are a bonus! I missed a couple of these, the sprinkles crust idea is too fun, love the fun WS pie cutter too :)

  10. These are all wonderful ideas. I need to get my head around 4th of July desserts. It will be here before we know it!

  11. Well now, they are all just as cute as PIE! I love your starfish throwing waterballs!

  12. I love the decorated pies you make, Lynn! May you have a happy 4th too!

  13. These all look so pretty. I broke down and made myself some fried pies today. I can't eat sugar but the fruit inside the pies is sweet enough. Oh, they are good hot out of the skillet! Enjoy your week sweet friend. Hugs, Diane

  14. I can barely make a normal pie crust! Bug maybe I'll channel my inner "Lynn" and give one of these a try!


Thanks for stopping by!
