Everyone needs a quick and easy dessert up their sleeve. My go-to? No-bake pies. It doesn’t matter whether I’m whipping up something special for a family get-together, throwing together a crowd-pleasing dish for a party, or just trying to satiate my unending sweet tooth—no-bake pies get the job done. They’re easy to make (even in a pinch), and they’re near-guaranteed to be delicious. Oh, and if you live in a tiny apartment sans a real kitchen? No problem—part of the beauty of no-bake pies is, of course, that no ovens are involved.
I know it seems a little counterintuitive to whip up a decadent dessert in the middle of summer, but hear me out when I say there’s really no better time for no-bake pies than the calendar’s hottest, most sweltering months. Since no-bake pies are, well, no-bake, they don’t require you to turn on your oven and render your kitchen an abject sauna. Not to mention, there’s so little time between prep and indulgence that you can basically enjoy your sweet treat right after you’ve thrown it together. (I can’t be the only one whose patience is worn thoroughly thin by summer’s oppressive humidity, right? I’m game to cut wait times anywhere I can.)
Whether you’re a pie lover or a lazy cook looking to treat yourself in the easiest way possible, the following no-bake pies are sure to become staples in your repertoire. No oven, no problem—just be sure to bring your appetite.
