15 Easy Summer Pie Recipes

Apple, sweet potato, cherry, pecan...what's your favorite type of pie? Dessert is an essential part of every summer meal, so check out these amazing pie recipes!

Cherry Pie Bars

These bars allows you to try something a little different without losing the cherry pie taste know and love.

Peach Custard Pie

We use low-fat milk along with nonfat Greek yogurt in the creamy custard for this peach pie. The yogurt gives the custard a smooth texture without using cream or too many egg yolks. A slice is just as delicious served warm from the oven as it is chilled. For an added treat, serve topped with fresh blueberries.

Honest Cherry Pie

You are only seven ingredients and just over an hour away from a traditional (and tasty) cherry pie.

Key Lime Pie

We tested this healthy Key lime pie quite a few times and no one got tired of it. We lightened the filling with nonfat condensed milk blended with tangy low-fat plain yogurt and continued the makeover with a topping of lovely golden meringue rather than whipped heavy cream. Use Key limes if you can find them, but common Persian limes work as well.

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Rhubarb and strawberries go hand in hand, and what better way to honor the combination than in this classic summer pie. The lattice top looks fancy but the technique is super-easy to master.

Cape Cod Blueberry Pie

Make this pie with any edible berry growing in your backyard--lingonberry, huckleberry, gooseberry or elderberry!

Cosmos Apple Pie

We like to use Granny Smiths here, since they hold their shape and are tart enough to complement the sweetness and spices. A little dusting of cinnamon sugar makes the pie look and taste great.

Frozen Raspberry Pie

This creamy, luscious pie is made by combining a fluffy cooked meringue with a raspberry puree, then pouring the mixture into a chocolate-cookie crust.

Salted Caramel Apple Pie

We mix a variety of three apples--Granny Smiths, Pink Ladies, and Honey Crisps--and drizzle them with caramel sauce, then sprinkle on a bit of fleur de sel, a combination that satisfies those salty-sweet cravings.

Deep-Dish Apple Pie

We use whole-wheat pastry flour to add fiber and lower the saturated fat by replacing some of the butter with canola oil. The brown sugar-sweetened filling in this pie is made with two kinds of apples for the perfect balance.

Chocolate Raspberry Tofu Pie

This chocolate raspberry pie gets an amazing smooth, rich, creamy texture from pureed tofu. But no need to tell that tofu’s the secret ingredient—we’re sure no one will guess.

Oatmeal-Nut Crunch Apple Pie

Add a little crunch to a traditional apple pie recipe by topping it with oatmeal flakes.

Sweet Potato Pie

To get a sweet potato pie that isn’t overly sweet, we use two kinds of sweet potatoes: Japanese sweet potatoes, which are a little drier in texture and mildly sweet, and deep-orange garnet potatoes, which are moist and quite sweet.

Maple Pecan Pie

This is the kind of pecan pie that has pecans resting in a sweet suspension, somewhere between gel and custard. We’re not going to make any apologies for the tofu in it ... it works!

Honey-Sweetened Cherry Pie

This cherry pie recipe is pure magic. If you can’t find sour cherries, don’t fret—it’s also delicious with sweet cherries. The filling has a hint of clove and honey, which gives it a novel flavor.
