1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cut eight 6-inch circles from the two packages of     Pillsbury Pie Crusts.  Fit five 4 1/2-inch mini pie pans with 5 dough rounds.  Cut 2 1/4-inch stars from center of remaining 3 dough rounds; set aside.

2.  Combine cherries with raspberries; then stir in sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, cornstarch and salt.

  2. oh i like! i never thought to cut out shapes in the middle of the pie crust. <--- i'm a little slow on the uptake.

    have a great 4th!

  3. Yum. I think those pies call for a little homemade ice cream.

  4. ... and a Happy 4th to you, also. You put me to shame with your baking. I
    cooked an baked so much when the children were little, that the kitche is my last favorite place. (Except when I am hungry !)
