How to Make 4th of July Pie

To make this eye-catching 4th of July Pie recipe begin by washing and taking off the stems of the blueberries. Cut off the leaves, wash, and slice the strawberries.  (After eating several along the way, I placed the remaining berries in separate bowls.  It didn’t’ really take the whole container of strawberries or blueberries). Mix the sugar and corn starch; divide it in half. I just eyeballed half and didn’t actually measure it out. Mix half of the mixture with strawberries and the other half with blueberries. Next add about ¼ tsp almond extract to each bowl of blueberries and strawberries.  I bought the pre-made dough deep dish pie crust since it is easy and good. It comes with two in each package. I took one and placed it on the bottom of my pie pan. Normally I buy disposable pie pans for easy clean up, but I forgot to get one at the store this time so I used the one we had at home. Pour the blueberry mix filling on half of the pie pan and pour the strawberry mix filling the other half of the pie pan.

Making Stars and Stripes

Take the second pie crust and use a star shaped cookie cutter and cut 3 stars. I bought a larger star shaped cookie cutter because there was one single cookie cutter for a dollar versus a box of over a hundred different shapes, including a smaller star, for about fifteen dollars.  I didn’t really think I needed that many cookie cutters lying around.  I took a butter knife and freehanded the stripes, and  I ended up with 6 stripes.  At first I ended up with maybe 4 or 5 and my husband looks at it and said that’s not enough crust for each slice of pie so I put the stripes really close so there was enough crust for each bite.  Whisk an egg white and brush it on top of the crust pieces and sprinkle with sugar; cover the pie with foil and cook it for 30 minutes. I like to cover it so the crust doesn’t burn before it is finished cooking. Take the foil off and finish cooking for 30 more minutess.  We let it cool while we cooked and ate dinner.  It can be served with ice cream or cool whip. It is also good leftover and heated in the microwave.
