Summer is (finally) here, and with the dawn of the new season comes a transition of culinary trends. Gone are the wintery days of comfort foods and heavy meals, because summer is all about keeping things light and fresh.

Of course, you were already thinking of doing just that, but we’ll help you get there with the following fresh fruit pies recipes. Feel free to let us know which fruit pies are your favourite or include your own fruit pies recipe.

Mini Strawberry Rhubarb Galettes
Basically a pie but without the need for a tin/pan, a galette is far easier to make but just as tasty. Perfect if short on time, and even quicker to eat thanks to their smaller size (and aren’t mini-desserts simply tastier, too?), these strawberry rhubarb galettes can be whipped up in a snap without anyone being the wiser.

Crumb Apple Pie
Okay, so apples aren’t really a summer fruit, but apple pie is too classic not to include in a list of pie-recipes. Besides, while other fruits may be in season during the summer months, there’s nothing stopping you from substituting them for apples in this recipe. As we all know, crumb-topped pies are delicious no matter what fruit is used for the filling.
