18 Summer Pies for a Sweet Fourth of July
We’ll be the first to admit it: We love pie. Sweet pie, spiked pie, pie a la mode… if it has a flaky crust and a fruit (okay, or chocolate) filling, we’re in. That doesn’t mean we don’t love a good cookie every now and then, and yes, we’ve been known to devour a molten lava cake or three, but if we all had spirit foods ours would absolutely, positively be pie. And, assuming our wild affection for these bits of pastry wonder hasn’t dimmed your own interest, let’s get down to business and talk 18 of the best pies to bring to all of your summer gatherings this season. Definitely ours.
1. S’mores Brownie Pie: Let’s start things off with a firecracker bang. This is a s’mores pie. In other words, it is a decadent treat that should probably make an appearance at every picnic, barbecue and 4th of July celebration you attend this summer. (via Avery Cooks)
5. Blackberry Cardamom Hand Pies: Rumor has it that hand pies are good for portion control, but that seems to only be true if you can keep yourself from eating five in one sitting. The combination of spice and summer fruit here is extra hard to resist. (via A Cozy Kitchen)
10. Strawberry Rhubarb Pie With Rose Scented Whipped Cream: It’s the rose scented whipped cream that truly caught our attention here. Yes, please. (via Heart of Gold)
11. Crack Pie: The original pie can be found at Momfuku Milk Bar. To make it yourself, it demands a moderate chunk of time and has a lot of ingredients… but its name does not lie. So addicting! (via Averie Cooks)
Alright, spill. What’s your favorite type of summer pie?
