CRAN-BLUEBERRY I LOVE YOU PIE

I made this pie for my special sweetheart for Valentine's Day, my husband. I actually made two desserts but this is the one he seemed to have enjoyed the most.

It is a combination of whole cranberries mixed with Blueberries,& a hint of lemon juice & zest.

I even cut out a heart in the middle of the pie for the steam to escape as it cooked. It is a deep dish pie, so the little shallow frozen deep pie shells probably will not work for this pie.

This is ONE OF the best ways to say I LOVE YOU, with the creation of a dessert that he really loves, combined with a special Valentine's Dinner
