If I had enough foresight, this picture would show a red, white, and blue dessert and be a perfect recipe to share on the Fourth of July.
But alas, my patriotic spirit was overcome by my desire to quickly take a picture and dig in to this scrumptious dessert. Io I forgot to add the white ice cream to my red raspberries and blue blueberries, But, when you do it at home, it will be a perfect dessert to celebrate the upcoming July holiday. It’s so simple by so delicious: fresh berries, a little bit of flour and lemon to thicken and bring out the juices all topped with brown sugar, oatmeal, and butter.
