Ingredients:

1 pkg. Mama’s Cookie Mix

¾ cup butter or dairy free margarine

2 eggs

Cream Cheese Topping:

8 oz. cream cheese

½ cup powdered sugar

1 Tbsp. milk

Fruit: For 4th of July Design use blueberries and strawberries.  For any other design use your favorite fruit.

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°.

In a mixing bowl, cream butter till smooth.  Scrape down sides of bowl.  Add eggs.  Mix well.  Pour half of cookie mix into bowl.  Mix on low speed until combined.  Repeat with remaining cookie mix.

With lightly floured hands press dough evenly into a 10 x 13 cookie sheet or pan.  If you don’t have a 10 x 13 pan.  You can use half of a baking sheet.

Bake for 15-16 minutes or until cookie looks cooked all the way through.  Cool completely.  Carefully flip cookie out onto a decorative platter.  You can take a baking sheet and cover with aluminum foil if you don’t have a big enough platter.

Cream Cheese Topping Directions:  Beat cream cheese on high speed until soft.  Scrape down sides of bowl.   Add powdered sugar and milk.  Beat on high speed for 4-5 minutes.

Place a pinch of topping and place it on the underside of cookie in each corner to prevent cookie from sliding.  Spread topping evenly over the top of the cookie.  Place blueberries and strawberries on cookie to resemble an American flag.  There should be 50 blueberries, 4 rows of 8 blueberries and 3 rows of 6 blueberries.  There should be 7 stripes made with strawberries.  It helps to place blueberries on first.
