I saw a picture of this pie in our utililities co-op magazine. There wasn't a recipe for it, but I thought it
was perfect for a 4th of July dessert. Here's how I put it together for a quick, easy rendition:
a single crust pie dough, either homemade or store bought
1 can cherry pie filling (I used a Fischer and Wieser product that I bought at Costco...a little expensive, but sooo good!)
1 can blueberrry pie filling (only part is used, refrigerate the rest for another use)
Roll out the pie crust bigger than normal. Cut 4 strips and several stars from the edges. I made a paper copy of a star, but if you have a tiny star cookie cutter, it would be so much easier!! Make sure, with the remainder of the dough, that you have a nice, round shape to fit in your pie plate.
Fit the round pie crust into the pie pan. Turn the edges under and crimp. With a piece of foil, fold the foil into a strip and make an "L" shape. Fit this into the upper left corner (it will be a backword "L"). Pour the cherry pie filling in the larger portion and then the blueberry filling in the small quarter. Carefully remove the foil. Place your strips of dough on for the stripes on the cherry pie filling and your stars on the blueberry filling.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes, then turn down to 350 degrees and bake for 35-40 minutes, until filling is hot and bubbly.
Enjoy with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Happy 4th of July!!
