When it comes to summer sweets, pies are the ultimate way to highlight all the best produce of the season. Blackberries, cherries, strawberries, and peaches all get their well-deserved spotlight as the star of some of our favorite pies. But then there's also cherry pie, Key lime pie, coconut cream pie... we don't even know which pie to start with, TBH. Whether you're looking for a no-bake dessert (the best kind during summer!) or a classic pie like a lemon meringue pie, here are all 37 of the easiest summer pie (and some tart!) recipes you could ever dream of. It's finally summer, so let us eat PIE.

Looking for something a bit, well, more low-maintenance than a pie? Maybe you shake things up by going free-form with an easy peach galette. Or perhaps you keep the fuss (but add a little boozy helper) with our cherry old-fashioned pie that is laced with a bit of bourbon. The only non-negotiable part? Topping all of these freshly baked pies with a healthy scoop of vanilla ice cream.

If you're somewhat of a pie renegade (or just don't really jam with fruity pies), no sweat. We've got plenty of rich, creamy, luscious pies that you'll be more than proud to bring to all those summer parties. Maybe you're craving chocolate and only chocolate? Try this insanely light yet rich chocolate pudding pie! Craving something buttery and comforting? This chess pie is just for you. Not a pie person? This birthday cake pie just might make you join Team Pie. Craving something on the chillier side? Either our frozen Samoa pie or cookies 'n' cream ice cream pie will help cool you down.

Still hungry? Try out all our favorite easy summer desserts, icebox cakes, and all these quick, easy fruit dessert recipes next!

Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie Tart

This tart is my formal request to have chocolate chip cookies in all forms. The crust is more like a shortbread version of the classic cookie to make it sturdy enough to perfectly hold its shape and the caramel and chocolate layers on top. It’s a sliceable, shareable cookie and a really wonderful option for your next gathering.

Nothing says summer quite like a tart Key lime pie. This mousse is every bit as refreshing, with a fluffy texture and a crispy oat crumble we could eat on its own. Key limes are more tart than traditional limes and well worth finding for this mousse.

Peach Galette

37 Summer Pie Recipes You're Going To Want To Make Even After Labor Day (9)

We do use our pie dough for the crust, but with a galette, you can skip all of the crimping and extra chilling. When rolling out the crust, don't worry too much if the edges start getting uneven or craggily. That will only add to the final look!

No-Bake Banana Caramel Pecan Pie

37 Summer Pie Recipes You're Going To Want To Make Even After Labor Day (10)

When it comes to old-school desserts, banana cream pie and pecan pie are always at the top of the list. If you’re torn between which dessert should be the centerpiece of your holiday table, why not combine them? This pie pairs pecans in a sticky caramel, layered with bananas, and topped with a light and fluffy vanilla cream filling. Think banoffee pie, taken over the top with pecans and caramel. Best part? It’s completely no-bake, so you won’t be fighting for the oven space.

Bourbon Peach Pie

Let this pie be the first thing you make to celebrate peach season. It has a flaky buttery pie crust that is so easy and makes it worth making your own! The filling is rich with spices and hint of bourbon that really makes the pie stand out. Peaches too firm? Baking them into this pie makes them perfectly jammy.

Banana Cream Pie

37 Summer Pie Recipes You're Going To Want To Make Even After Labor Day (15)

Is there anything as lovely as a homemade pie? We think not. While pumpkin pie and apple pie are best in the fall, banana cream pie is just the treat for special occasions all year long. It's layered with dreamy vanilla pastry cream and slices of banana, all topped with clouds of whipped cream. This version calls for our favorite basic pie dough, but of course you can use store-bought dough if you prefer.

Peanut Butter Banana Pie

37 Summer Pie Recipes You're Going To Want To Make Even After Labor Day (16)

This is a nostalgic feeling pie that’s rich and creamy and easy to make. It feels like the peanut butter and banana sandwich you’d make after school, but so much better. The chocolate crust is rich and gives the perfect crunch against the smooth filling, and since it’s a press-in crust, it takes much less effort than a traditional pie crust. The filling is no-bake and unbelievably addicting; to say we are obsessed is an understatement.

Coconut Cream Pie

Rhubarb Pie
