Chilled Summer Pies

These fun pies are the perfect make-ahead treat for backyard barbecues and cookouts.

It may be hot outside, but that doesn’t mean the only choice for a delectable dessert is ice cream. Grab a slice of crumb-crust pie, and settle in for the summer. Here are some easy recipes for refreshing takes on classic Southern desserts. The Mixed Stone-Fruit Pie is a great choice when you need a quick sweet treat thanks to its no-cook filling. For a simply Southern delight, spend a few minutes in the kitchen preparing a Peach Divinity Icebox Pie, or a Praline Key Lime Pie. The recipes for the Lemon-Mascarpone Icebox Tarts and the Lemonade Pie will show you how to keep your taste buds tingling, but for a deliciously decadent crumb crust pie you will love Rebecca’s Black Bottom Icebox Pie. Summer days in the South may be steamy, but our recipes for quick and easy icebox pies will have you chilling all season long.
