I wanted to make a pie for 'drop-in' company and didn't have enough ingredients with out running to the store...didn't want to do that.
So as I checked the pantry and freezer I found a can of cherry pie filling and some bluebrries I cleaned and frozen a couple months earlier.
Had to brainstorm quickly...so this is what I came up with.
Was a huge hit, everyone loved it.
If you give it a try I hope you like it...soooooooo easy.

You can ofcourse use any combo of fruits that more easly fit your taste buds.

How to Make Cin's "Easy Cherry-Blueberry Pie"

Step-by-Step

  1. I made enough pastry for a double crust pie (recipe link below).
    Warmed the canned cherry pie filling in a sauce pan on the stove, with the rum and lemon juice.
    Pour 1/2 of it into the pastry-crust you've put in bottom of pie plate.
    Sprinkled a layer of ''fresh frozen'' blueberries on top of cherry filling, then pour the other half of the cherry pie filling on top of the blueberries.

    Covered with a the other pastry crust, seal edges and crimp.
    Brush the liquid egg white over the top of crust and edges.
    Then I made some slits (also an ''S'' for my last name) on top crust and sprinkled sugar crystals on top. I used red & clear crystals.
    Baked pie at 425 dF for 30 minutes. Don't let edges get too dark or burn, cover edges if needed.
    OPTION:
    Serve hot or warm with vanilla ice cream.
    Easy as pie =;D & delish!!!

    P.S. I got the blueberries from a local fruit farmer and froze several to use in pies, pancakes, muffins...etc.
