All-American Strawberry-Blueberry Pie

All-American Strawberry-Blueberry Pie

Summertime is full of opportunity to get together with family or friends and celebrate! July 4th offers a long weekend for barbecues and picnics.  We have a treat this year because four of our grandchildren will be spending the holiday weekend with us, so I am digging out my recipes for memorable foods and old-fashioned fun! All-American Strawberry-Blueberry Pie will be perfect for our family get together. We will be pairing it with homemade vanilla ice cream. Yum!

Stars and Stripes Pie

Make this patriotic pie to celebrate the red, white and blue!

 

All-American Pie

This folk art type stars & stripes pie won’t last long at your July 4th celebration.

Our family loves berry pies. This recipe is adapted from a summer time favorite that mother used to make using a 50/50 mixture of rhubarb-strawberry. Strawberry rhubarb pie is full of sweet and tart deliciousness, however, it’s a pink pie so wouldn’t work well for this occasion. For the stars and stripes variation, adding blueberries in one of the quadrants makes a great background for your star cut outs, and with the bright red strawberries under the strips of dough, it gives tribute to Old Glory. If raspberries are available, a combination of raspberries and strawberries would be delightful.

One of the great things about making pie, is eating the leftover crust pastries, sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. I will add my crust recipe from my Cuisinart 14-cup food processor. You will have pie dough left over if you make a recipe for a two crust pie.

Pie Crust

Get creative with your leftover pie crust!

 

If you opt for a more simple design to celebrate the red, white and blue, you may want to consider something like this pie that has a basic star etched in the top crust.

All American Pie

Don’t be afraid to free hand a design on your pie. If you are not confidant, you could perfect your shape on paper and lay it on top for a pattern to cut around. Use this star-shaped idea to celebrate a star worthy accomplishment. It’s a great excuse to make pie!

    Morn’n Missy J. I was drooling over pie pics dreaming of making my own. Then I had a light bulb moment – how can I get Missy J to make me one? Hmmmm. I’ll have to work on that 🙂 Love the leftover crust art work.

      Awww, what a sweet thing to say. It should only be right that making someone a strawberry pie to thank them for making such a scrumptious strawberry birthday cake would be a kind and gracious thing to do? Hmmm, I’ll have to give that some thought.
