Cranberry Cherry Pie Recipe

1 15-ounce package refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on package

1 21-ounce can cherry pie filling
1 16-ounce can whole berry cranberry sauce
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Glaze and topping:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
3 to 4 teaspoons water
1/4 cup almond slices

Prepare pie crust as directed on package for a two-crust pie, using a 9-inch glass pie pan.

Heat oven to 425 F. In a large bowl, combine all filling ingredients. Spoon into crust-lined pan. Top with second crust; seal edges and flute. Cut slits in several places in top crust. (You can cut shapes in the top crust so the openings will reveal the red filling.0

Bake at 425 F. for 40 to 50 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cover edge of crust with strips of foil after 15 to 20 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning.

Remove pie from oven. Immediately in small bowl, combine powdered sugar, corn syrup and enough water for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over hot pie. Decorate or sprinkle with almonds; for an added touch, decorate each slice with three sugared cranberries. Cool at least one hour before serving.

Serves 8.
