Correct spelling, explanation: recipes is a plural form of the noun recipe originating in the Latin word recipere. The plural form is created in a regular manner, by adding the suffix -s, which characterizes plural words in English. Because recipe ends in e, there is no reason to add any more letters, so the proper form is only recipes.
Definition of recipes:
noun, plural of recipe

My grandma wrote down all of her recipes in a beautiful handwritten journal.
On the internet, you can find recipes for everything from simple cocktails to whole dishes.
Incorrect spelling, explanation:
recipies is an incorrect word for several reasons. First, the base word here is recipe, not recipie. Second, even when the plural s is added to the recipe it does not gain any more letters, so it’s still recipes. And third – if you think about the pronunciation, it would be closer to the spelling of pie, so the word wouldn’t be understood correctly.
