Here’s a festive treat idea for the 4th of July, one that can stand the heat too. Have you ever made meringue cookies before? We love them. They’re light and airy, a perfect treat to take outside on a hot day because it won’t melt and make a big mess.
Here’s a tip, Trader Joe’s sells a big tub of these meringue cookies for cheap, I also found them on Amazon too if you don’t have a TJs where you live. So…if you’re not up for baking in the hot Summer months, you can just buy them. The fun thing about these meringue cookies is that they’re the perfect little stand for cute party picks and flags. I found these fan party fan picks at Michaels Craft Store and I added some gold glittery stars that I cut out with my CuttleBug and a star cutting die. Just stick the stars in the center of each party pick with a glue dot or a pop dot, and stick the fan pick into the center of the meringue cookies. These cookies crumble easy, so gently stick them in each one.
So easy and so festive for the 4th of July. They would look darling on a dessert table too.
Next time you’re at Trader Joes, you’ll have to pick some up!
Okay, I’d love to know, what’s your favorite thing to buy at Trader Joes? I love hearing what everyone loves to buy there.
