American Flag Berry Pie Recipe
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
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.
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.
