8 Sweet Southern Pies that all people Should Bake

Key Lime Cream Pie

This delicious no-bake beauty makes me proud. A summer picnic or get-together would benefit from its cool, refreshing taste. This pie goes rapidly wherever I take it, and everyone wants the recipe.

Irresistible Coconut Cream Pie

Grinding my own flour for this recipe is great. Simple pat-in crust with deep grain flavor. Old-fashioned coconut cream and a fluffy meringue make it delicious.

Chocolate Cream Pie

Our teenage son John bakes a lot for 4-H. Classic chocolate cream pie with a flaky crust is his favorite.

Spiced Butternut Squash Pie

My mom usually cooked this dessert using homegrown squash. My dad's favorite after-dinner dessert. I live to this day. Celebration, Florida's Johanna Poulson.

Grapefruit Meringue Pie

We have a grapefruit tree in our backyard, so I use fresh juice in this pie. The distinct citrus taste of this dish is amazing.

Red, White and Blueberry Pie

This creamy pie with berries is a showpiece for Fourth of July or summer parties. It looks and tastes great! —Broken Arrow, Oklahoma's Kimberly McFarland

Mama’s Buttermilk Coconut Pie

My mom taught me how to make this pie 40 years ago, exactly as her mom did. I was 6 when Mawmaw died, but I remember her cooking in her flour-dusted cotton gowns.

Easy Fresh Strawberry Pie

Instead of a cake, I cooked this strawberry pie for my mother's birthday. Oklahoma berries were beautiful in mid-May. It was a family highlight.
