Are you deep in the throes of summer fruit and wondering what to do with it? Over in our Provisions shop, we make the most of good food by finding useful, beautiful products to go with it.

Today: How to bake a pie and take it with you. Napkins and forks optional, vanilla ice cream required. We're also giving away two PieBoxes, because we like to share -- just tell us what pie you'd fill yours with in the comments below. 

Since they are so many pie lovers, and only two PieBoxes to give away, stay tuned for an email to your inbox on Monday, July 21st with a special PieBox discount for all our fantastic, creative, sugar-fueled commenters!

Update: Congratulations to our winners -- Elizabeth who served apple pie as her wedding cake and Harvey with his johannisbeere kuchen! 

Since it’s summer, we’re assuming that you’re making some pie. (We are.) And if you’re following our Instagram feed lately, you’ll know that when we say “some pie” we mean “all the pie.” 

From peach to strawberry to lemon meringue, you can’t really go wrong when choosing a pie flavor. You can, however, go wrong when carrying it -- which is where the PieBox comes in. Designed in Chicago by Adrienne Blumthal, a baker who tired of hiding her edible works of art in homely plastic containers, it’s been one of our best sellers on Provisions since we first discovered it. 

  

Pies are notoriously tricky to transport -- wrangling a hot pie in a cardboard box is inelegant and awkward, especially when you add in obstacles like cars and subways. 

When we first starting selling the PieBox last year, we thought it was pretty much perfect. So did a lot of you -- one very thoughtful husband gifted a PieBox to his wife, who happened to be the New York Times baking guru herself: Melissa Clark. It turned out the PieBox was no match for Melissa's expansive pie plate collection and some of her plates were too big!

So today we’re unveiling a newer, bigger version, so no pie -- even your heftiest cherry or weightiest rhubarb -- is left behind! The new PieBox is sized to fit almost any pie plate (9" Pyrex, Anchor, fluted Emile Henry plates all work): We've used it to tote our 8-inch chocolate tarts, our 9.5-inch deep dish peach-strawberry pies, and our 9-inch blueberry beauties alike.

 

Once you've read up on tricks for making a perfectly flaky crust and fancying up your pie, pick a recipe. Then, if you're feeling inspired, add some intricate lattice-work or a perfectly rumpled toasted meringue, and take it somewhere to share -- safely. 

We're giving away two PieBoxes to celebrate the new version! To enter, tell us in the comments below by Sunday, July 20th at 5PM: What would you fill this PieBox with? 

First and third photos by James Ransom; all others by Posie Harwood.

I have a favorite recipe that was shared with me, somewhat reluctantly, by a friend when I visited her in Germany, johannisbeere kuchen. It was presented as a secret family recipe from her grandmother, and possibly earlier. It's light and airy, fragrant with red currants, lemon zest and vanilla sugar, and is amazingly attractive to fruit flies this time of year. Red currants are only available for picking for a couple of weeks, between strawberry and blueberry season, in Michigan. I would love to bake a 9 or 10" version of this recipe in a springform and store it in its own piebox to keep it safe from the curious, hungry and mating fruit flies.

Every autumn for the past 18 years, my family has gathered at my sister's farm for Pie Day. On hand we have 2 or 3 bushels of Northern Spy apples - picked by some of us the week before - plus stacks of butter and cream cheese, rows of flour and sugar bags, and a large mason jar of cinnamon. Surrounded by the yellows and reds and oranges of the fall trees outside the kitchen picture windows, we set about making 50 - 60 pies that are, at the end of the long long day, distributed among the helpers and gently transported to their freezers. If carefully rationed, we enjoy fresh baked pies all year... until next Pie Day. When I'm invited to Pot Luck gatherings, arriving with a pie is an expectation...and a pleasure. Arriving with a pie in this elegant pie box would be - can I say - the icing on the cake?!

My grandmother taught me to make pie; she lived in PA north of Phillie and every summer vacation with her was pie heaven. Sour cherry, rhubarb, peach, apple, shoofly - but the pie that always makes me think of her is groundcherry custard. "Wild" groundcherries sprung up like weeds around the garden, and the ripe fruit just fall off the plant with their papery husk when they are ready, making the perfect treasure hunt for little kids. We filled our shirts with groundcherries and then relished that super delicate cinnamon custard flavor with little bursts of fruit after dinner. I've never ever found a groundcherry pie anywhere else!

Many, many years ago, my husband and I sliced grapes, while watching a movie, for a grape pie recipe I found in a magazine -- we sliced enough grapes for two large pies. It took the better part of a feature film to slice all the individual grapes. We were quite the sight, sitting on the couch, large bowl between us, cutting boards on our laps, slicing grapes one-by-one. I never made the pie again. Now that I have a food processor, I am going to try my hand at that recipe again, but without all the labor intensive slicing. I would like to tote my grape pie, which our extended family has been requesting for years, in that fabulous pie box, to a large family get together. It would make the surprise reappearance of the grape pie all that more special.

Come fall, it would be filled with a pumpkin pie made using Ruthie's secret ingredient (shhh...a tablespoon of good molasses). The crust edge would of course be adorned with pastry leaves. Christmas? Ruthie's pecan pie—another special recipe that mom found in an old southern cookbook, Charleston Receipts—different from the usually gooey pecan pies. Spring birthdays brings requests for Black Bottom pie from the Stouffer's Cookbook—many people don't realize there were restaurants long before the frozen foods! This pie is AMAZING—pastry crust filled with a rich chocolate bottom, rum chiffon center, topped with whipped cream and chocolate curls. The pie basket I inherited from mom is getting to be a little unstable, so the pie box would be welcomed. Besides, daughter #3 (of 4), who is a fine pie baker herself, has been coveting it. Wondering which of my 5 granddaughters will become the next pie baker!

Each summer, I give my sister the rhubarb and strawberries from our garden and she makes the most delicious — and beautiful pies. As a graphic designer, I appreciate a proper presentation for almost everything, but most certainly for something so lovely as her pies. Sadly, I have seen her transport them in cardboard boxes with a dishtowel draped over the top. She's the practical sister and would appreciate the convenience, stackability, portability and the fact that they're vented so as not to sog out her perfect, flaky crust. And since I'm the more visual (i.e. frivolous) sister, I love the look — hand crafted, natural, simple and pure. Like the pies themselves.

A Pie Box!How handy would that be. Here on Prince Edward Island, Canada, my daughter and her family, my sister-in-law and my husband and myself, each have houses here on our 4.5 acre " compound". We frequently take turns hosting communal meals.This would come in so handy for transporting desserts: something we could all share. My first desert would have to be a Strawberry /Raspberry/Blueberry Clafouti, a summer tradition. Love you site.

My new pie box would be filled with as many individual hand pies as I could layer! I would use the apples and plums from our trees here in sunny California!

I love cherry pie, or raspberry pie. I'm from the Midwest, so making fresh tart cherry pie is the best. With raspberry pie you need a lot of raspberries, so it is think and juicy!

I would fill my piebox with a simple homemade Apple Pie. Made from the apples picked from the graphs of my grandmothers special tree. For that is where the heart of the pie is.

Two options: a fresh summer nectarine pie, but made with a short crust and a layer of pastry cream in the bottom, served cold; a savory Swiss Cheese and onion tart with a puff pastry crust (saves you some sweat in the summer) and sweet Spanish and red onions, Gruyere and a touch of Bleu. Ideally, I'd do both and have a grand picnic. Chilled beer and sparkling wine of course.

The first pie would be a Strawberry-banana cream pie, then a Marionberry pie, those would be the first of many pies.

Marion Berry Pie would be my choice !

Marionberry, would be the correct spelling. It has a somewhat tart, earthy and sweet flavor. According to wiki it is an indigenous blackberry with a hybrid parentage of Chahelam / Ollalieto and originated in 1956 in Marion Oregon. When I first tasted them in a pie I recognized it as unique and very tasty!!

I think to star with an ultimate, double-chocolate silk pie and then maybe a raisin pie, walnut pie, custard pie. They're all good.

I would make a peach & wild red raspberry pie. Juicy peaches are in season now in PA, and my boys went raspberry picking this morning!

Right now sour cherries are in season here (Pittsburgh), and so it would definitely be a sour cherry pie!

I would fill this beauty with a three berry galette! In Maine the strawberries are out and the raspberries and blackberries are quickly on their way. This pie box would make this rustic pie look glamorous!

I would use these for my FIRST home made cherry and blueberry pies made from FRESH berries! Yum and yum yum. Ok, now the thought is planted and I will have to try to make them whether I win or not! Darn, but hey, either way is a win win situation. :-)

Definitely peach pie--made from delicious Texas peaches! And, separately in the Yeti cooler, homemade vanilla ice-cream. Both so good you could rub them in your hair!
