With the season of fireworks right around the corner, what a perfect time to give this recipe for Patriotic Cookies a try! While they may not have the loud factor of the true fireworks, they will definitely have the “wow” factor for anyone who takes a bite.

What I love most about this recipe is that it is made with cream cheese. It’s just one of those ingredients that take these cookies from good to great. And don’t take my word on it. Ask any of my kids as well! They’ll be happy to tell you how much they love these cookies. In fact, they love them so much I can’t keep up with the demand!

    I love how fun and easy these cookies are. They are perfect for the 4th of July or Memorial Day. You could also adapt them for Canada Day by leaving out the blue sprinkles – or use them for a British summer picnic as they are! Congratulations! this post is also being featured at next week’s Hearth and Soul Link Party starting on Monday. Hope to see you there!
