Summer's here yet again, and so are our favorite fruits at their peak. Plump berries and juicy stone fruits, all fleshy and sweet enough to be bought by the bushel and eaten straight. But sometimes a pie is in order, and perfectly ripe fruit plus a buttery crust (and a little tinkering) is all it takes to go from dessert zero to hero to superhero.
So we pulled together our most delicious summer pie recipes, for when you need a show-stopper for an August barbecue, accidentally buy too many strawberries at the market (sometimes they look so good!), or are just feeling inspired. There's never really a wrong time for pie.
