Blackberry Icebox Pie From 'Fruitful'

Emma Kobolakis Post a comment

Icebox pie is one of those make-ahead treats that you can look forward to all day, knowing that a cold slice is waiting for you when you get home. Fruitful's icebox pie is a cloud of blackberry whipped cream set atop a condensed milk custard, all packaged in a graham cracker crust. The super-sweet custard is a pleasant surprise, hidden under purple clouds of berry cream, and the graham cracker crust adds a delightful toasty note. More

Thick, juicy slices of nectarines are stewed in sweet wine and spices, then gently laid on a bed of tart crust in this Fruitful dessert. Nectarine syrup is distilled from the simmering fruits, and used as a garnish. More

Blackberry Thyme Galette

Carrie Vasios Mullins 1 comment

Galettes are simply free-form tarts, but there is something about their ease of preparation and rustic look that makes them perfect for summer. This version replaces the traditional pâte sucrée dough with a tender cream cheese-based dough that's flavored with fresh thyme. The galette is filled with lots of fresh blackberries, meaning it's good on its own or even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. More

What better way to celebrate the change of seasons than with the sweet-and-tart combination of berries and rhubarb? This old standby contains just fruit, sugar, and a little something to thicken it up, all wrapped up in a whole wheat crust. More

Teeny Lamothe's Grapefruit Pomegranate Pie

Emma Kobolakis 12 comments

There are several fruits in this pie, but not in the way you'd expect. First, an egg yolk-and-cornstarch grapefruit custard is made, into which is added a cup of pomegranate seeds. The entire thing is ensconced in a whole-wheat crust, garnished liberally with whipped cream and, of course, more pomegranate seeds. More

Strawberry Buckle

Wake and Bake Carrie Vasios Mullins 7 comments

Buckles are so-named because the cake portion falls, or buckles, around the fruit during baking. This version pairs strawberries and vanilla in the crumb and adds ginger for a kick in the buttery topping. More

Malted Chess Pie

This is a simple chess pie with a double dose of malt in the filling, thanks to malt syrup and malt powder. An optional malt-flavored whipped cream topping is suggested, which is a great idea if you plan to eat this pie solo. More

To make this salty stunner, a couldn't-be-simpler pretzel crust serves as the base for a honey-sweetened, brown-buttery filling, topped with a thick layer of melted chocolate and cream. A healthy sprinkling of flaky sea salt is the finishing touch. More

Strikingly dark and delicious, this sweet and spicy First Prize pie uses the complex flavors of chai tea to flavor an otherwise simple chess pie. A plain crust serves to highlight the filling, and big fat dollops of fresh whipped cream are encouraged. More

Pop-Hearts (Nutella Filled Hand Pies)

Cakespy cakespy 2 comments

In this toothsome homemade take on a commercial classic, a tender, flaky heart shaped crust is filled with Nutella, then baked to crispy-on-the edges, soft-on-the-inside perfection. A healthy dollop of confectioners' sugar glaze with rainbow sprinkles makes these treats as adorable as they are sweet. More

Caribbean Bakewell Tart

Emma Kobolakis 2 comments

A healthy helping of citrus zest, lime marmalade, and a dash of white rum make up the tropical trifecta of flavors in this easy, breezy tart. A dead-simple pastry crust and hearty sprinkling of toasted almonds are a toothsome, well-suited contrast. More

Four & Twenty Blackbirds' Green Chili Chocolate Pie

Emma Kobolakis 9 comments

Some desserts boast one secret ingredient. This pie has three. Jalapeno and ginger flavor heavy cream, which is mixed into melted bittersweet chocolate spiked with cardamom. The result is heady, spicy, and delightful, with a chocolate crust to match. More

Four & Twenty Blackbirds' Black Bottom Lemon Pie

If you're sick of lemon pies topped with cloying clouds of meringue, give this pie a try. A layer of dark chocolate ganache lines the crust, topped with a Meyer lemon curd infused with orange zest. It's a beautiful interplay between dark and light, bitter and sweet flavors. More
