For the juiciest berry pie filling, use frozen cherries and blackberries instead of fresh. Frozen berries keep their sweet-tart flavors packed inside until they warm, bubble, and burst in the oven. After plenty of difficult topping "testing," we have determined that a scoop of vanilla ice cream is the best match for this berry pie.

Black raspberries are sweeter than blackberries but tarter than red raspberries. Blend the cool hybrid fruit into an icy mixture of jam and whipped cream for a gorgeous, orchid-hue pie filling. A purchased graham cracker crust makes this frozen berry pie recipe a snap to prepare.

If it's not prime peach or blueberry season, don't fret: This dessert works just as well with frozen fruit.

Slab pies are pretty, delicious, and a cinch to bake and serve. Especially when, like this triple berry pie, you start with store-bought puff pastry instead of DIY dough. This ginger-infused treat works well for dessert, then is great again as a decadent brunch the next day if you're lucky enough to have leftovers.
