I made this flag cookie for Memorial Day weekend. I found the directions at Walmart's website. It was in their circular ad for this past weekend. It didn't bake up just like the directions so, I will talk you through it if you want to reproduce it.
Heat oven to 375°F.
Spray a 12-inch pizza pan with cooking spray or use parchment paper lining pan to bake cookie on.
Bake 15-20 minutes and let cool completely.
When the cookie is baked, let cool 20 minutes. It will have spread out from the original shape you inserted into the oven. Trim the cookie into the round shape that fits your serving platter. Discard excess cookie or feed to hungry children (always have some of those at my house).
Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with mixer until blended; if needed, I added about 1-2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream to get the cream cheese to a nice frosting consistency. Then spread onto crust.
Take the heavy whipping cream and beat with a hand held mixer. When it gets almost stiff add the 3 tablespoons of sugar and beat until stiff. Place the whip cream into a pastry bag with large tip that is desired and pipe the whipping cream between the rows of berries. You will have 6 rows of berries and 6 rows of whipping cream stripes.
Arrange fruit into stars and stripes pattern referring to the recipe photo for help. First, arrange blueberries in a wedge shape in the upper left corner. (Try to have the right edge of the wedge slightly left of center.) Cut the strawberries into quarters. Next, arrange 6 rows of strawberries horizontally. Start with the top and bottom rows at the edge of the cookie and evenly distribute the other 6 rows in between. ( I simply added the strawberries and then piped the whip cream all the way down the cookie, spacing it as I went.) When placing the strawberries put the wedged edge of the quartered strawberry into the cream cheese.
note* I also added 13 whip cream stars on the blueberry section. I always loved the Colonial period in history. I am a geek like that!
Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.
