Blackberry Icebox Pie From 'Fruitful'

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

Teeny Lamothe's Grapefruit Pomegranate Pie

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

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

Samantha Bee's Salty Caramel

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

Chai Chess Pie

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
