The easiest red, white and blue desserts with which to celebrate the July 4th weekend are these two, from prominent New York City restaurants.
The first recipe from Il Buco, is as easy as it gets:
If you want to make it fancier:
This recipe from Per Se pays homage to stone stacking, an ancient ritual used as a marker of different types. In archaeology, they are called cairns.
This sorbet cairn requires only that you scoop and stack the sorbet.
Fine pastry chefs have moved away from round scoops to oval ones, thanks to gadgets like this oval scoop (note: It comes in several sizes).
Per Se used a garnish of edible gold foil and a blueberry. You can hold the foil.
You can also scatter fresh fruit—blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, quartered strawberries—at the base of the cairn. Banana slices add the “white” to red, white and blue.
1. SCOOP the ovals in advance and freeze individually in plastic wrap, or on a cookie tray.
2. ASSEMBLE. We think the order should be the reverse of the photo: first strawberry, then lemon, then blueberry on the bottom. Garnish with a blueberry.
