Summer pie recipes get a lot of attention, but you can’t say it’s undeserved. Whether we’re talking about vibrant blueberry, tart strawberry or decadent peach pie, there’s no denying that this summer dessert is delicious, elegant, and popular for good reason.
Now, that’s not to say that peak-season summer fruits like berries and peaches aren’t tasty as-is. It’s certainly easy enough to polish off a pint of blackberries, or get rid of a bag of peaches in under a week without cooking them. But baking these fruits into a pie with a buttery crust and a little bit of sugar—now that is a next-level option worth exploring.
Whether you’re headed to the supermarket or already have a pile of fresh summer fruit on your counter, here are 17 summer pies you need to try before the weather chills.
