What’s more “summer” than a slice of pie?! How about a mile-high one, topped with a very generous dose of whipped cream, meringue or even chocolate? If you ask me, it’s the perfect way to end the night after a day filled with grilling and summer fun. That’s why I’m all about taking your favorite flavor of pie and transforming into a towering, sky-high treat. From chocolatey goodness to berry deliciousness (and even no-bake versions), there’s a mile-high pie for everyone to enjoy, starting with these yummy picks.

A delicious combo of both chocolate and peanut butter, this rich and creamy dessert is topped with a tall order of sweetened cream cheese, sweetened with sugar and whisked until light and fluffy.

Ree’s no-bake pie is layered with an assortment of ice cream flavors like coffee, chocolate and caramel (plus cookies!) before it’s covered in a crunchy chocolate shell.

Take advantage of the season’s bounty of fresh fruit! Instead of hot and bubbly pie fresh from the oven, fill your cooked shell with just-picked blueberries, blackberries and raspberries — so you’ll get a sweet surprise when you cut into it.

No need to start a fire to enjoy this classic treat. A graham cracker crust holds the chocolate pudding center before being topped with a Swiss meringue that’ll remind you of toasted marshmallows. This pie captures every flavor of the beloved campfire dessert.

You’ll only have pies for this one after taking a bite out of this decadent sweet-and-sour dessert. For dramatic effect, feel free to use a spoon to swoop up parts of the meringue into high peaks towards the edge of the crust.
