7 Delicious Reasons We're Happy It's Fruit Pie Season
There is no end to the many ways we celebrate and enjoy the luscious seasonal fruits of the South. We cook them down into jams and jellies, bake them up into beautiful cakes and incorporate them into everyone’s favorite summer treat, homemade ice cream. Fruits and berries are also delicious loaded into cobblers, but, if you want to really impress your guests, bake them a stunning fruit pie. More fussy than a cobbler or crisp, a fresh fruit pie is enveloped in a tender piecrust that is either crimped, latticed, and shielded to get the perfect look. Whether you want an easy blackberry pie or a peach pie recipe, check out this lineup of some of our best fruit pie recipes.
