Cranberry and Blueberry Pie

This recipe creates a beautiful, rich looking filling that delivers a deep fruity taste sensation. Blueberries are the dominant flavor but are nicely balanced with the tartness of cranberries. Using a whole berry cranberry sauce creates a filling with a smooth silky texture.
