Directions

  1. For crust, combine flour, salt and nutmeg in a large bowl. Cut in shortening until mixture forms coarse crumbs. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until ingredients are just moistened. Divide dough in half.
  2. Between sheets of waxed paper, roll each half into a circle large enough to fit a 9-in. pie pan. Press one circle into the pan; set aside the second circle.
  3. For filling, combine cranberry sauce, sugars, flour, cornstarch, orange juice, orange peel and salt in a large bowl. Mix well. Stir in blueberries. Spoon filling into pie crust; dot with butter. Place second crust over filling. Flute edges and cut slits to vent steam.
  4. Bake at 400° for 40 minutes or until center is bubbly and crust is golden brown. Cool to room temperature before serving. Yield: 6-8 servings.

How can I keep my pie shells from becoming soggy when making cream pies ( like pumpkin pies)?
