Make Your Taste Buds Happy this July 4th

I'm sure everyone's finalizing their 4th of July BBQ menu at this point. Are you looking for a delicious and patriotic dessert everyone will love? I have a great and easy one that will make your party a hit!

2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped
2 quarts strawberries, halved and divided
2 quarts blueberries, divided

1. In a large bow, beat cream cheese, sugar and extracts until fluffy.  Fold in whipped cream.  Place a third of the mixture in a 4 quart bowl.  Reserve 20 strawberry halves and 1/2 cup blueberries for garnish

2.  Layer half of the remaining strawberries and blueberries over cream mixture.  Top with another third of the cream mixture and the remaining berries.  Spread the remaining cream mixture on top.  Use the reserved strawberries and blueberries to make a "flag" on top. 

Not only is this dessert adorable, but it packs a big taste too.  Maybe it'll be your new go-to dessert to make each July 4th?
