Brianne's Peach Pie
Brianne's Peach Pie

"I made this peach pie just before I left for a summer job on an organic blueberry farm. The farm is away from home, and I'm staying in a place with no internet or no oven. My summer dreams of pie were almost dashed, but I managed to sneak in this peach pie early in the season. I'm so glad I did!"—Brianne L.

Mary's "Tribute to Michigan" Cherry Blueberry Pie

"Sweet, tart, gorgeous, and luscious with the very best fruits my state of Michigan has to offer. Who needs a reason to eat pie??? All the cool kids have fallen under its spell; here in the Midwest, though, it never lost its charm ... :)"—Mary B.

"This is a pie made with shortcrust, a layer of rich pastry cream, and blueberries in warmed jam. The recipe comes from one of my favorite resources, Chez Panisse Desserts. It was so simple, but one of the best things I've made."—Ann P.

"With local peaches at their juicy peak, this luscious and incredibly easy pie, care of the late Nora Ephron's Heartburn, couldn't be more timely in so many ways."—Miranda L.

Megan's Cherry Lattice Deep Dish Pie
Megan's Cherry Lattice Deep Dish Pie

"Like most good pies in the universe, this one is mostly butter. Don't let the cherries fool you. They are lovely, yes, but the star here is the golden deliciousness that is butter. In fact, I had to put a cookie sheet underneath the pie pan to catch the drips!
The pie was baked at the height of cherry season, when we'd finally gotten our fill of munching on them by themselves. I can't wait for the next season to begin!"—Megan S.

Michelle's Strawberry Lemon Curd Pie
Michelle's Strawberry Lemon Curd Pie

"This looks like a standard lemon curd pie topped with strawberries, but two things modernize this classic: its Nilla wafer and saltine cracker crust and its strawberry topping is macerated with raw sugar, vanilla bean and mint. The crust ends up somewhere between a sandy graham cracker crust and traditional pie dough. It’s a keeper that I’ll be using with vanilla custard in the next go round. Recipe is from Millicent Souris’ How to Build a Better Pie."—Michelle J.

Sarah's Blackberry Pie

"Blackberry (or if you're lucky enough to find them boysenberry) pie is a favorite in my family. After struggling with soggy crusts and fillings that would pour out slices, I'm happy to share this recipe for the perfect summer berry pie. We usually eat it the next morning for breakfast too!"—Sarah A.

Rache's Peach Pie

"This weekend I made my annual peach pie. Once a year and only for those I love. Each year the recipe changes, depending on the quality of the peaches and how much I care about those who might be eating the finished product. For the crust I deviated from my usual recipe. I opted for the crust recipe featured in the Serious Eats book that I just received as a birthday gift (!!! They are not paying to write this, but Real Talk it is a Damn Good Recipe.) It was part of an apple pie recipe but it is no time for apple pie! It is peach pie season, people. I adjusted slightly by using vanilla sugar instead of regular white sugar and then dusted the top with sugar in the raw to get it super crunchyflakey. The indulgent combo of butter and shortening was a perfect compliment to the sweet and bright peaches. For the pie innards I adapted the recipe over here for my 10 inch deep dish pie plate that is excessively large but still does not have a trapdoor bottom leading to endless pie forever. I used about 3 pounds of peaches, threw in some light brown sugar, and almond extract (why not? I have no scruples, come at me purists.) Paired well with vanilla ice cream as nature intended."—Rachel G.

Gayle's Blueberry Peach Frangipane Tart

"I have attached a picture of a blueberry peach frangipane tart (I figure this goes in the same category as pies!), ready for the oven. Any summer fruit will work as well - just arrange berries or slices over almond cream in a sweet pastry crust and bake until the fruit releases its juices."—Gayle S.

Sarah's Strawberry Sour Cream Pie
Sarah's Strawberry Sour Cream Pie

"This pie recipe caught my eye because the filling is so unusual: a cup of sugar, a cup of sour cream, four cups of strawberries and just a little bit of salt. It really couldn't be easier, and through some sort of magical alchemy it transforms into this great, creamy, custardy pudding that just goes great with the strawberries. If you want a unique summer fruit pie, I would definitely recommend this."—Sarah C.

Vicky's Vegan Red White and Blue Fruit Tart
Vicky's Vegan Red White and Blue Fruit Tart

"We came up with this Vegan Red White and Blue Fruit Tart to celebrate July 4th this year, the natural way! The homemade crust is made with coconut oil for a "buttery" feel; we used almond milk for the eggless pastry cream, fresh summer berries for color and coconut "whipped cream" to add a hint of tropical flavor. Beautiful and delicious!"—Vicky C.
