Celebrate the beloved stone fruit with this delicious pie.
The day is near, the day is here: It's cherry season! While some fruits are better in the summer months, but you can get them all year long (think strawberries, raspberries), cherries are only around on the shelves for a few short months! That's why I get excited every year when I spot them. That and because they're delicious.
What better way to celebrate the humble cherry than with a delicious pie? Pairing the cherries with blueberries is a perfect balance: The tartness and sweetness of both mingle well with each other. I'm even so in love with cherries that I couldn't help but use some leftover pie dough to create a little cherry emblem atop my pie!
