Recipe Ingredients for Cranberry Blueberry Pie

12 oz. frozen blueberries
12 oz. fresh cranberries
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon sugar
12 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cold water

Recipe Directions for Cranberry Blueberry Pie

  1. For filling: Combine all ingredients in large saucepan. Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens and begins to boil, stirring occasionally, 12 to 14 minutes. Continue to boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Transfer berry mixture to glass or ceramic dish; cool completely (mixture will thicken). DO AHEAD: Can be made 3 days ahead. Cover; chill.

  2. Pulse the flour and sugar together in a food processor. Cut the butter into chunks and add to the processor. Pulse the butter and flour until it resembles coarse sand. Larger butter flecks make a flakier crust, so don't over process here.

  3. Add the cold water to the processor and pulse a few times until the dough forms one clump. Again, try not to over process. Add a little more water (1/2 tsp at a time) if the dough does not form one cohesive piece.

  4. Dust a piece of plastic wrap with flour, form the dough into a ball, and wrap tightly the in the plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  5. While the dough is refrigerating, make the filling for the pies. Dice the apples and combine them in a bowl with the cranberries, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and cloves.

  6. After the dough has chilled, roll it out to 1/8 - 1/4 inch thick on a lightly floured surface. Using a circular object (approximately 4 inches in diameter), cut as many circles as possible out of the dough. Collect the scraps, roll out again and cut more circles. Try to cut 12 circles in as few "roll outs" as possible.

  7. Place six circles on a parchment lined baking sheet, spoon the filling on top, and then place the last six circles over top. Crimp down the edges with a fork and make two small slits in the top of each. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes or until they are golden brown.

  8. TIPS: For something extra special, brush the tops of the pies with milk and sprinkle sugar on top. The milk will give the pies a slight sheen and help them brown. The sugar will glisten!
