Mock Cherry Pie

From "Woman's Institute Library of Cookery, Vol. 4"

A pie that closely resembles cherry pie in both flavor and appearance may be had by combining cranberries and raisins. This is an excellent substitute for cherry pie and may be made at times when fresh cherries cannot be obtained and canned cherries are not in supply.

* 2 c. cranberries
* 3/4 c. sultana raisins
* 3/4 c. water
* 1 c. sugar
* 2 Tb. flour
* 1 Tb. butter

Wash the cranberries and cut them in half. Wash the raisins and mix them with the cranberries. Add the water and cook until the fruit is soft. Mix the sugar, flour, and butter and add to the mixture. Cook until the flour thickens, place the mixture in the lower crust, cover with a top crust, and bake in a hot oven until nicely browned.
