Stirring constantly, cook mixture over medium heat 5 to 10 minutes or until it begins to thicken. Remove from heat; stir in cherries, strawberries, and lemon juice.
  3. Spoon fruit filling into pastry-lined pan. Top with second pastry. Seal and flute edges, then make steam vents in top crust. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons sugar. Cover edges of pastry with aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning.

Wow, this was great pie!! I used fresh strawberries and cherries (not sour cherries) - I sliced the berries and cherries and sprinkled them with sugar/lemon juice, stirred and let them sit for about 5 minutes. I mixed the dry ingredients (tapioca, sugar, cornstarch & salt) with 3/4 cup of water and the juice from the berries, let it boil for 5 minutes, added the sliced fruit and boiled for another 2 mintues. I used a "shortbread cookie" crust (like a graham cracker crust), no top crust and baked it at 350 F for 20 minutes. My husband and kids were disappointed that there was only 1 pie and not 1 EACH!!!!

I thought this was going to be a great pie, but didn't turn out so good. The filling reminded me of grape jelly. Not sure why, followed the recipe exact. The pie set up nice and looked pretty with ths sugar on top of the crust. The flavor and texture were weird though.

I decided to try this pie three weeks ago and have now made it three times for different holidays and potlucks. I have brought home an empty pie dish each time. I made it exactly as directed above and it is lovely. The actual size of the canned cherries called for doesn't exist in my area - replacing with more berries works just fine.

I made this pie for Thanksgiving dessert and everyone passed on the pumpkin pie and went for the berry pie. They loved it and so did I. I used two can's of cherries and one bag of stawberries. It was wonderful...

I made this recipe with frozen home-grown strawberries and cherries; it was great! Wait until it is cooled to eat or else it will be runny.

Excellent recipe! Only change was to use egg wash on top.
