Very berry cherry pie, with its fresh cranberries, wild blueberries, and tart cherries, has show stopping flavor. This pie is bound to be requested again and again.
Hey there, Friends! I hope that you’ve been enjoying Pie Week as much as I have. I don’t know about you, but with all of the deliciously gorgeous pies that my friends have baked this week, my baking To Do List has gotten significantly longer! There’s a lot of pie baking in the foreseeable future, and this is a very good thing.
Very Berry Cherry Pie is another very good thing. I’ve made no secret of my love for fresh cranberries, nor of my love of cherry pie. As I was perusing my freezer for Pie Week inspiration in the form of frozen berries, I found a bag of fresh cranberries, snuggled up next to a bag of tart cherries. Couple that discovery with remembering a beautiful pie design that I had seen on Pinterest a few years ago, I had just the inspiration I needed.
Since both cranberries and cherries are tart, sweet blueberries are added to the mix. This evens out the pucker, without entirely diminishing the tang.
The resulting Very Berry Cherry Pie is nothing short of extraordinary!
Tangy cranberries, tart cherries, and sweet blueberries, coalesced into a delightfully textured pie, with just enough spice to keep it interesting.
My family was certainly interested, devouring the pie in no time flat! Even my pickiest of eaters loved it. I had so much fun playing with the pie dough and working out the design. The Sons were thrilled and are eager to make their own decorative pies.
It’s safe to say that Very Berry Cherry Pie is a new favorite at our house. I really hope that it becomes a new favorite at your house, too.
