American Flag Berry Pie Recipe

We have Fourth of July at my home every year and this is the delicious pie I always serve. My family always enjoys it because it is so festive.—Sherry R Clubine, Independence, Kansas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + standing Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • Pastry for a double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 2-1/2 cups pitted dark sweet cherries
  • 2-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Additional sugar

Directions

  • 1. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom crust; trim pastry even with edge. Set aside.
  • 2. 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.
  • 3. 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.
  • 4. 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.
  • 5. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 35-40 minutes longer or until pastry is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 8 servings.
