Cherry Blueberry Pie

Cherry Blueberry Pie

I love Cherry Pie.  Made with real sour cherries picked from a tree, not the can of pie filling from the grocery.  I also love Blueberry Pie.  Same scenario – no can of pie filling from the store, but real blueberries in a filling made from scratch.  I recently cleaned out the freezer side of my refrigerator and I found a freezer container of frozen sour cherries that we had picked from my parents cherry tree a few years ago.  Unfortunately it wasn’t enough cherries for a pie.

I waited a couple days thinking perhaps inspiration would strike for another dessert that would be good with sour cherries.  But I really wanted a pie and I had homemade pie crusts in the freezer so I decided it was time to improvise.

I had blueberries in the freezer too so I mixed the blueberries and cherries and combined my pie recipes.

cherry-blueberry pie-8We still like Cherry Pie the best but this was a pretty good stand-in when there weren’t enough cherries.

cherry-blueberry pie-17I’d recommend you try this if you have some blueberries and cherries hanging out in your freezer like I did 😀

cherry-blueberry pie-16Vanilla ice cream is great as a side dish to the main dessert too.

 I hope your week was lovely.  And if you don’t have a dessert planned for Super Bowl Sunday you could always make a Cherry Blueberry Pie!  Your welcome!

    Ok now I’m trying to be good so I don’t gain weight, this time of year is hard for me especially as I love me some comfort food. Absolutely delicious looking and sounding pie. My hard to resist foods are baking of just about anything, your pie for one. I crave fruit so badly and fresh is ridiculously expensive. Red grapes at City Mkt. are tiny for $2.99 a lb. eeeekkk. I won’t be making this with fresh fruit/will be frozen and a frozen pie crust from grocery store.
    For somebody that came from family of from scratch bakers and cooks I’m a dismal failure. Hopefully I have some other talents, still waiting to find out. Happy weekend
