Ingredients

  • Pastry for a double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 2-1/2 cups pitted dark sweet cherries
  • 2-1/2 cups fresh blueberries

Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom crust; trim pastry even with edge. Set aside.
In a large bowl, gently combine cherries and blueberries. Combine the sugar, flour and cinnamon; stir into fruit. Let stand for 10 minutes. Pour into crust; dot with butter.
Roll out remaining pastry into a 10-in. circle. Cut pastry in half. Cut one half into two wedges. Using a 1-in. star cookie cutter, cut out stars from one wedge. Place cutout pastry wedge over filling. Discard cutout stars.
Cut remaining pastry pieces into 1/2-in.-wide strips; position over filling to resemble a flag. Seal and flute edges. Sprinkle pastry with additional sugar. Cover edges with foil.

"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!!"
