1. No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie
If you want something easy that’s also decadent, look no further than this peanut butter pie. All you need is four common ingredients and a premade graham cracker crust. And since it’s “no-bake,” there’s no need to wait around for it to finish cooking.
If you don’t want to use a premade crust (or don’t have one on hand), you can easily make your own using graham cracker crumbs.
Also, allow time for this pie to chill and firm up. Since you’re not baking it, you’ll want to cool for at least two hours — or you can freeze it to add to your frozen pie recipes list!
2. Cream Cheese Lemonade Pie
Lemonade in a pie? Yep, you read that right, and it’s delicious! This pie combines the creaminess of cream cheese with the tartness of lemonade, and you won’t be able to stop thinking about it.
If you love lemon desserts, you’ll also love this pie. It’s another no-bake unless you choose to make your crust. If you use a premade crust, there’s no need to bake anything.
Just allow time for chilling. You’ll want to cover this and chill it in the fridge for at least four hours. But trust us that it’s worth the time!
3. No-Bake Pumpkin Pie
You might think this is like an old pumpkin pie… but there’s a twist!
This pie recipe features layers that you don’t usually get with pumpkin pie. And once you make it, you’ll never want to go back to pumpkin pie again.
The “secret” layer is in the graham cracker crust, filled with smooth, delicious cream cheese. Add on the traditional layer of pumpkin pie, and then the whole thing is topped with a Cool Whip.
Share this pie with your guests at Thanksgiving, or make it any time of the year just because.
4. Heavenly Lemon Cream Pie
Here’s another creamy, lemony pie with a texture similar to cheesecake.
Instead of cream cheese, the recipe calls for mascarpone cheese to give it a different taste from cheesecake.
However, you can still use cream cheese if you want to. The taste will be slightly different but still great.
The recipe uses fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, and lemon extract for a concentrated lemon flavor.
If you can’t find lemon extract, you can also use lemon oil. You won’t be able to stop thinking about the lemony goodness!
5. No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecake Pie
This pie is full of chocolate wonder and incredibly easy to put together. Besides the chilling time, you only need about 15 minutes to assemble it.
And let’s talk about the taste… each bite is creamy, fluffy, and just the right amount of chocolate flavor. It also has a thick consistency that comes from the lemon juice reacting with the condensed milk.
For the chocolate, you can use whatever type you like best. If you want a sweeter pie, milk chocolate is the best way to go.
6. No-Bake Pina Colada Cream Pie
You really can’t go wrong with a pina colada in pie form. It’s like going to the beach in your kitchen!
The “pina colada” flavor in this pie comes from crushed pineapple, coconut, cream cheese, and heavy whipping cream. And this is another of our no-bake pies with a graham cracker crust.
Topped with Reddi-Whip and toasted coconut, each slice is a vacation in your mouth. This is the perfect no-bake pie for a summer get-together with friends or family.
7. Easy Key Lime Cheesecake
Key lime is a classic, but have you had it in cheesecake and no-bake form? Enter this recipe. You’ll experience sweet, creamy, and tangy flavors all at once.
To make the filling just right, start with room-temperature cream cheese. Beat the cream cheese by itself first, then add the other ingredients and continue beating.
You’ll also want to beat the whipped cream by itself and while it’s cold before folding it into the filling. The result is an incredible key lime cheesecake filling with the best no-bake graham cracker crust.
8. No-Bake Peanut Butter Cup Pie
If you love chocolate, peanut butter, and cheesecake, this is your perfect all-in-one dessert. It’s a Reese’s in a pie.
This no-bake pie recipe is made even easier with another premade crust. Except this one uses an Oreo premade crust — yum x 1,000.
And let’s not forget the toppings that go on top of this peanut butter pie. Mini Reese’s cups, hot fudge topping, and melted peanut butter? Yes, please! We’re ready to start making this right now.
9. Butterfinger Pie
You can probably guess the star ingredient for this one.
Butterfinger candy bars are combined with peanut butter for the most decadent filling. And did we mention it also has a chocolate Oreo crust?
Butterfingers are easy to crush, which makes them a great candy option for a pie. You’ll need a whole bag of fun-sized Butterfinger bars for this.
You’ll also need cream cheese to make this pie as creamy as possible.
10. No-Bake Chocolate Cream Pie
If you’re looking for no-bake pie recipes with creamy chocolate, this is the pie for you.
Although it might not have an exciting title like some of the other pies, it doesn’t need one. The creamy chocolatey flavor says it all.
Chocolate cookie crust, dark chocolate filling, and whipped cream topping combine to form the most decadent chocolate dessert you’ve ever had.
This pie is so rich that you only need a little bit to satisfy you — that is if you can stop with just one slice.
11. No-Bake Oreo Cream Pie
You only need five ingredients to make this incredible pie. It’s full of Oreos, so what more could you want?
Both the crust and the filling contain Oreo pieces, and you can add more cookies on the top if you wish. The recipe includes making the crust, but you can also buy a premade Oreo pie crust to save time.
This pie comes together within minutes, and it needs to chill for at least an hour. Then, you can feel free to dig in.
12. Coconut Cream Pie
Coconut cream pie is an old-fashioned favorite for many, and you really can’t go wrong with this one. It’s also naturally no-bake, meaning it’s quick and easy to put together.
For the best results, use a double boiler to make the custard so that there’s no risk of the milk mixture burning. It’s also best to slowly drizzle the milk mixture into the hot milk and whisk continuously.
You will need to make the filling on the stovetop for a traditional coconut cream pie texture, but then the rest is very simple.
13. No-Bake Peanut Butter Pie
Simple and perfect for a last-minute dessert, this peanut butter pie never disappoints.
You only need six simple ingredients: a chocolate graham cracker crust, cream cheese, sugar, creamy peanut butter, vanilla, and Cool Whip.
Combine all of the filling ingredients, pour them into the pre-made crust, and chill in the fridge for at least four hours.
This pie is also perfect for when you need to prep something ahead of time. Make it the night before, set it in the fridge, and it will be super firmed up and ready to eat the next day.
14. Oatmeal Cream Pie Cheesecake
If you love cheesecake but want something with a little twist, here’s the recipe to make next. It’ll become your go-to easy dessert pie recipe, especially if you enjoyed oatmeal cream pie cookies growing up.
This recipe is unique from the very beginning. You start by lining the pie tin with whole oatmeal cream pies! Then, you mix all of the filling ingredients and pour them over the cookies.
You’ll need to let this sit in the freezer for two hours and then in the fridge for 12 hours. The waiting is hard, but the result’ll floor you.
15. No-Bake Triple Layer Lemon Pudding Pie
As the title implies, this pie has three delicious layers of lemon pudding. It also only takes five ingredients to make.
The secret (and super simple) ingredient is instant lemon pudding mix. People will think you spent forever on this pie, but they don’t have to know that the key ingredient came from a box.
The best part about this pie is that it just gets better with time. The flavors will meld overnight and get tastier each day.
16. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pie
The best part about this recipe is that you can eat the cookie dough without cooking it!
This pie uses eggless cookie dough, which means it’s safe to enjoy right away. It also comes together in just ten minutes.
It’s the easiest cookie dough you’ll ever make, and you’ll use a premade pie crust to save extra time.
The topping is just chocolate chips, and butter is melted in the microwave, then spread on the cookie dough. Your taste buds won’t believe how simple the whole process is.
17. 5-Ingredient Peanut Butter Pie
Can you ever have too many peanut butter pie recipes? (Spoiler: The answer is no, you cannot.) This pie requires minimal effort to put together, and the outcome is excellent.
Heavy cream, cream cheese, and peanut butter combine for a creamy, rich peanut butter flavor.
Just be sure to use creamy peanut butter for this — not chunky. You want a smooth texture all the way through.
You’ll want to whip the filling well. Start with whipping the heavy cream until it’s stiff. Then, whip the other filling ingredients until fluffy before mixing everything. And most importantly of all, enjoy!
