Every year for as long as I can remember, my mom has made this delicious Flag pie. It is a tradition we have done on every 4th of July for our big family cook-outs. It is a festive, easy, and fun pie to make!

Enjoy!

Flag Pie

  • 3 cans cherry pie filling
  • 1 can blueberry pie filling

Favorite Pie Crust:

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 3/4 cup shortening
  • 1 TBSP. sugar
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 TBSP. vinegar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup water

Frosting for top (you can +/- any of the ingredients depending on how thick you want the frosting)

  • 1/2 cup confectionery sugar
  • 1-2 TBSP. milk
  • 1/8 tsp. almond extract

With a fork mix flour, shortening, sugar and salt. In a separate dish, beat remaining ingredients. combine both mixtures with a fork or pastry blender until moist/ Using hands mold dough into ball and chill at least 15 minutes before rolling out. Dough can be left in refrigerator for three days or frozen until ready to use.

After dough is finished cooling line a greased large cookie sheet with 3/4 amount of the dough making a thin crust. Then put the blueberry filling in one corner and spread the cherry filling all around it. Next cut out strips and starts to put on the top. Bake @ 400 degrees for 35-45 minutes or until lightly browned. After it is fully cooled spread the glaze over the stars and stripes.
