Turkey Countdown Recipe #2

Cranberry Blueberry Pie

In case you don't know I love cranberries!  I drink cranberry juice everyday, and cook with them whenever possible.  This is my favorite pie recipe that has been putting smiles on faces for the last 5 years :)

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries (or frozen)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen blueberries
  • double crust pie crust
  • tin foil

In large saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, cranberries, lemon juice and blueberries. Cook over medium-high heat until mixture boils, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat and simmer until the cranberries pop and the mixture starts to thicken. Let it cool for 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 450 and place the bottom pie crust in the pie plate.  Pour the mixture in the pie plate and place the top crust on.  ( I love a good lattice work pie, although for this pie I like to use a small cookie cutter and cut out 2 hearts in the middle separated by cut lines before I place the top crust)

cut a sheet of foil in 2 inch strips and place them around the edge of your pie.  This will keep your edge from burning before the top and middle are done.  Bake for 25-35 minutes or until the top has browned. Cool for 2-3 hours before serving.

If you have a favorite pie recipe leave it below.  I would love to try it out!
