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)

2. Frozen Strawberry Lemonade Pie: Light, refreshing and reminiscent of a classic summer beverage, this strawberry lemonade pie is great for hot summer days. (via Neighborfood)

3. End of Summer Pie: A quintessential summer treat, this triple-berry pie combines some of the best flavors of the season under a pretty lattice crust. (via Tartelette)

4. Wild Blueberry Pie: This pie’s fruit laden exterior hides a filling made from chocolate, cheese and caramel. You’ve been warned. (via Pure Vegetarian)

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)

6. Blackberry Lime Pie: While we’re on the subject of new spins on summer fruits, this blackberry lime pie is infinitely worth your consideration. (via Bakers Royale)

7. Tomato Pie: Savory pies don’t always make the list, but if you’re game to try something new, this tomato pie is the perfect way to change up your pie approach. (via 4 Pure)

8. Strawberry Mug Pies: This is pie in a mug. Pie. In. A. Mug. You can thank us later. (via How Sweet It Is)

9. Plum Pie: Sweet and tart, this pie combines grape jelly and fresh plums to make a summer pie with intense flavor. (via Saveur)

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)

12. Mojito Pie: A minty, Mojito-inspired twist on a classic Key Lime Pie. (via Gimme Some Oven)

13. Buttermilk and Honey Pie: A custard-based pie, this sweet treat is easy to whip up and would taste fantastic alongside a pile of summer berries. (via A Beautiful Mess)

14. Sour Cherry Pie: Rumor has it you should eat this pie’s leftovers for breakfast. (via Bon Appetit)

15. Simple Stone Fruit and Thyme Tart: Raw, vegan and grain-free – this one sounds healthy and delicious. It’s also a great way to use up some end of summer stone fruit. (via Wholehearted Eats)

16. Key Lime Pie: The coconut graham cracker crust on this pie sounds extra refreshing for summer weekends. (via Port and Fin)

17. Deep Dish Berry Pie Tart: We’d never argue with a cream cheese pie crust. Or a deep dish pie. Ever. (via Sprinkle Bakes)

18. Lemon Raspberry Pie Crust Hearts: Just in case you have a little extra crust left over at the end of your kitchen adventure… (via Joy The Baker)

Alright, spill. What’s your favorite type of summer pie?
