Summer is joyous for so many reasons. The longer days. The fun trips. The never-ending supply of fresh, seasonal produce. The only thing better than eating fresh fruit on a hot summer day is to bake it into a pie.
That's right, we said bake. The summer months generally mean we stay out of the kitchen -- hello, grilling season -- and refrain from warming up our kitchens by using hot ovens. But pies make the heat worth it. The 35 summer pies we've found for you below certainly do that. These pies are loaded with fruit, custards and even chocolate. They're enveloped in the butteriest of crusts, and are the perfect excuse for an extra scoop of ice cream on a sultry summer night.
