Ingredients

  • pie 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 for topping the crust

Directions

Line a 9-inch 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-inch circle. Cut pastry in half. Cut one half into two wedges. Using a 1-inch star cookie cutter, cut out stars from one wedge. Place cut out pastry wedge over filling. Discard cut out stars. Cut remaining pastry pieces into 1/2-inch-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°F for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F; bake 35 to 40 minutes longer or until pastry is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack.
