As much as I love baking, sometimes it’s nice to whip up a dessert that requires no oven time. You’ll speed up the dessert process and keep your kitchen cooler, too.
I confess that a few of these are what I call “low-bake” dessert recipes. I usually prefer to bake cookie crusts briefly just to make them a bit sturdier. But if you want to make those desserts truly no-bake, you can place the assembled crust in your refrigerator or freezer while you make the filling. It may be a bit more crumbly, but it will be so delightful and delicious that you likely won’t care.
Be sure to plan ahead for some of these, as they’ll require some refrigerator time before serving. Of course, that makes those recipes perfect candidates for make-ahead dessert options!
