"This pie has quickly become a family favorite. The mix of sweet cherries and blue berries is great!! I have made it several times, but not yet for an American Holiday. It is on the menu for 4th of July, with the decorator crust, and I am anxious to show it off!! I will be adding blue sugar for the stars area and red sugar for the stripes. Thanks for a new tradition!!"
