ThisBlack Bottom Cherry Pie by Emily Fraser is the perfect decadent dessert for following a hearty meal. The base is coated in a rich dark chocolate ganache that adds a creamy richness that pairs perfectly with the tangy, but sweet dark cherry filling. This pie has two crust options, classic, which is buttery and flaky, or gluten-free, which is nutty and slightly sweet. You are also left with extra chocolate ganache, which is perfect for adding to other sweets!

The crust of this Coconut Cream Lime Pie by Emily von Euw is made up of hemp seeds and dates. Hemp is full of protein, fiber, and a gorgeous balance of healthy fats: omega 3’s and 6’s. The coconut and lime cream part of the pie is basically what it sounds like; it is made up of coconut meat, coconut oil, coconut nectar, and a lime. Yep. The best things in life are the simplest.

11. Strawberry Pie With Chocolate Drizzle
This Strawberry Pie With Chocolate Drizzle by Chrysta Hiser is such an easy dessert to put together. Seriously. I love to bake and cook, but sometimes I just want a dessert that is simple and fuss free. Personally, I like having these types of recipes kicking around just in case you need something ready in a hot minute. This pie probably takes a mere 20 minutes. There is the chilling time, but the total work load is pretty minimal. It’s also one of those desserts that just looks fabulous no matter what and it seems like you took way more time on it then you did. I completely love dishes like that.
