Sweet California strawberries, Barbados cherries, sweet mangoes, pineapples, and more come into season during the spring, and after a long winter of sparsely stocked farmers market bins, we are happy for the variety of sweet, colorful fruit available. What better way to celebrate spring’s flavors than with a fresh baked pie overflowing with the season’s bounty.

There are still plenty of fruits like apples — found year round most places — which we can’t help but spice and toss into a flaky pie crust, but then there are also those distinctly spring flavored treats, like hummingbird pie with fresh pineapple and light-as-air banana cream pie

As any great pie-maker knows, your pie is only as good as its crust, so check out our guide for making the perfect, tender, flaky pie crust or if you find yourself in a time crunch, use store-bought pie crust and use the leftover dough for one of these delicious creations.

For more inspiration and pies to try this spring from classic apple pies to sweet spring rhubarb pie recipes that are perfect for celebrating the warm spring weather.

Everything from the pie crust to the filling in this pie is homemade. The secret ingredient is the boxed sugar free jell-o pudding that provides a gelatinous texture, one similar to jam. Serve warm, and — if you really want to be adventurous — add some fat free ice cream or cool whip! — Julie Kang

Blueberry Pie

A woven lattice makes a striking top for a blueberry pie. The open weave allows a peek at the filling and lets steam escape as the pie bakes. The process of weaving the top is easy to follow — cut the dough into strips, preferably with a fluted pastry wheel, and arrange them on top of the filling. This pie and many others with juicy berry fillings are thickened with cornstarch, a stronger option than flour (a more appropriate choice for less juicy apples or pears). You may want to adjust the amount of thickener if the berries are particularly juicy, or if you prefer a firmer or looser pie filling. — Martha Stewart’s Pies & Tarts

The inspiration for this pie is hummingbird cake, a Southern classic traditionally made with canned pineapple. We use fresh pineapple, which, along with bananas, dried apricots, and a crumb topping made with coconut, pecans, and cinnamon, heightens the lush feel. In the dead of winter, a slice of this pie is like a quick trip to the sweet South. — Holly Ricciardi
