Need a quick and easy item to bring to your summer get-together, picnic or BBQ? These are quick and easy (...not to mention delicious!) They disappear as soon as they are served, so make a bunch. (Of course, omit the alcohol for children and be sure to have the adult version out of reach or clearly marked!)

How To Make red, white and blue strawberry "shots"

  • 1
    Cut a small piece off of the bottom of each strawberry so that they stand upright. Then, hull each berry, making sure not to pierce the bottom. Cut a small "X" 1/2 to 2/3 of the way down the berry. Place on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper.
