I got this idea from womansday.com. I changed it up and used strawberry pie filling instead of the cherry. The cherry filling tends to be a little tart for me. I made it for the 4th of July and everyone LOVED it!

Ingredients

  • 1 box
    (15 oz) refrigerated ready-to-use pie crusts
  • 3 can(s)
    cherry or strawberry pie filling
  • 1 can(s)
    (21 oz) blueberry pie filling
  • 1 large
    egg, slightly beaten in a cup
  • 3 Tbsp
    sanding or coarse (crystal) sugar
  • ·
    *you also need: 11/2- to 2-in. star-shaped cookie cutter
  • *TIP: I USED A SHALLOW PIE PLATE AND USED 2 CANS OF STRAWBERRY FILING AND 3/4 CAN OF BLUE BERRY. SAVED A LITTLE MONEY THAT WAY!

How to Make Stars and Stripes Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Roll a pastry round into a 12-in. circle. (Use a small amount of flour on the board and rolling pin to help the dough not stick.) Place rolled dough into a 9-in. pie plate, letting edges overhang. Fold the over hanging edges in half. Then make a border along the edge. Brush the beaten egg lightly along the crust and sprinkle with sugar.
  2. Place two cans of the cherry or strawberry pie filling into a large bowl. Drain the third can of filling, then add those cherries to the rest of the filling.
    NOTE: If your using the shallow pie plate then you will use all of the 2 cans of the cherry or strawberry pie filling without draining them.
  3. Divide the pie shell with a clean 6-in. square of cardboard or cut plate. Bend it in the middle to form a wedge, then place it in the upper left corner of pie (like hands of a clock pointing to 9 and 12).
  4. Fill with blueberry pie filling, then spoon cherry pie filling into rest of pie. ( It's easier to do if you have someone holding the cardboard in place while you do this step) Remove cardboard when pie is filled.
  5. Roll other pastry round into a 10-in. circle, then cut it into five 1/2-in.-wide strips. Use a cookie cutter to cut out 5 or 6 stars from rest of pastry.
  6. Brush stripes and stars with beaten egg, then sprinkle with sanding sugar.
  7. Lay out your dough strips. Start in middle of pie and place 3 long strips across the filling toward bottom edge. Take care to make sure they are evenly spaced. Cut remaining 2 strips into 4-in.-long pieces. Lay over cherry filling on upper right corner. Carefully press ends of strips into edge of crust or you can just lay them edge to edge like I did. Place dough stars on upper left corner of pie.
  8. Gently place pie in oven and bake for 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F and bake 25-30 minutes longer, or until pastry is golden brown and filling bubbles. Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!
