Things You Will Need
Â· 2 Cups pitted cherries
Â· 2 Cups blueberries
Â· 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
Â· 1 tbs of butter
Â· 3/4 Cup white sugar
Â· 1 tsp of vanilla extract
Â· 1/4 Cup all-purpose flour
Â· 1 Box of double crust pie (or make from scratch)
Â· Large bowl
Â· 9" pie pan
Â· Aluminum foil/Pie crust shield
Mix the sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add the cherries, blueberries, vanilla extract and mix well.
Step 2Line the 9" pie pan with one of the pie crusts. It helps to sprinkle a little flour on the counter or on some wax paper when rolling out the store bought crust. Pour the fruit mixture into the pie shell and dot in four spots with the tablespoon of butter.
Cover with the top crust and flute the edge by pinching the two crusts together into a v-shape. Now cut a few small slits into the top crust in any pattern you want choose. This is for more than decoration it also releases steam from the pie. You can also make a lattice top by slicing the crust into 1" wide pieces and criss crossing them on the top of the filling.
Bake at 375 degrees for one hour. Cover the edges of the crust with aluminum foil or a pie crust shield for the first half hour to keep it from over cooking. Place the pie pan on a baking sheet to catch any filling that might bubble over.
Now with this cherry blueberry pie recipe and a little bit of work you are about to have what will surely become a family favorite. Enjoy!!
