Brambleberry Pie
Any berry that grows on thorny canes or trailing vines, called brambles, is considered a brambleberry (raspberries and blackberries are two examples). Mix berries with some sugar and a bit of thickener (flour and tapioca in this case), and you have a very simple pie.

Triple Coconut Cream Mini Pies in Coconut Pie Shells
At Tom Douglas's three Seattle restaurants ― Dahlia Lounge, Etta's Seafood, and Palace Kitchen ― the triple coconut cream pie is a perennial bestseller. We love the miniature version (and have made them even smaller here, since they're so rich).

Peach Streusel Pie
A crisp streusel topping studded with walnuts and pecans perfectly accents tender, sweet peaches.

Chocolate Cream Pie
In our quest for an intensely flavored pie, we've poured a thick, creamy bittersweet chocolate custard into an almond-scented cookie-crumb crust, then topped it all with a generous pile of whipped cream.

Chunky Lemon Meringue Pie
In this adaptation of old-fashioned Shaker pie, thin slices of whole lemon are soaked with sugar overnight to soften and sweeten the peel. When mixed with eggs, they create a soft custard base with chewy lemon pieces and a pleasantly bitter edge.

Best Basic Pie Crust Dough
It's simple: Use shortening for a flaky texture and butter for a delicious flavor.
