Get creative with the placement of the stars on this patriotic pie. Try layered clusters for a rustic look, or stand the stars up slightly as you press them into the filling, so they look like they're pledging allegiance to the flag.

Peaches and Cream Pie

Together, peaches and cream are simply made for summer — and remember, the juicier the peaches, the more delicious. This recipe's dark horse is the water you add to the cream cheese; it transforms the dense cheese into a light, silky filling.
