2 Delicious No-Bake Pie Recipes

It’s 03/14, and you know what that means…pi day! To celebrate this day which happens to line up to a famous sequence of numbers which is also the name of a popular dessert, let’s make pies! Now, I’m not much of a baker, but I’m not going to let that stop me from making a delicious pie. For any fellow non-bakers, I’ve found some no-bake pie recipes I would love to share. Plus, if you want your kids to help you out around the kitchen but are a little hesitant to let them around the oven, these recipes are perfect for you; everyone has fun in the kitchen, and no one runs the risk of burning the house down. It’s a win-win! 

Nutella Lovin'

Nutella Pie

Crust

Oreos are great and so versatile! They’re great with milk. They’re great with peanut butter. And surprisingly, make for a great pie crust (who knew, right?).

You just need 2 ingredients: 

+ 24 Oreos (approx. 2 cups)

+ 4 tbsp of unsalted melted butter


Now, what do I do?

+ Throw the cookies (creme-filling still intact) in a food processor or blender and grind them into fine crumbs.

+ Combine the crumbled Oreos and melted butter in a bowl and mix them well.

+ Spread this mixture evenly over the pie dish of your choice (a 9 or 10-inch would work best).

+ Chill for 30 minutes in the refrigerator


Filling

While the crust is chilling out, we can make the filling! This is where the Nutella comes in.

Ingredients:

+ 8 oz of softened cream cheese

+ 1 cup confectioners’ sugar

+ 1 cup Nutella

+ 8 oz of frozen whipped topping (thawed)


Now, what do I do?

+ Beat cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, and 1 cup of Nutella until smooth

+ Fold in whipped topping 

(Folding is essentially a fancy term of combining a light and a heavy ingredient)

+ Spread evenly on the already-chilled crust

+ To be extra fancy, you can take ¼ cup of Nutella and warm it in the microwave for 15-20 seconds and drizzle it on top

+ Refrigerate the whole pie for at least 4 hours or overnight

 

Toffee Peach Pie

Toffee Peach Pie

Crust

This crust is very similar and just as simple as the Oreo crust.

Ingredients:

+ 6 ice cream sugar cones

+ ½ brickle toffee bits

+ 3 tbsp unsalted butter melted


Now, what do I do?

+ Throw the ice cream cones and toffee bits in a food processor or blender and grind them into fine crumbs.

+ Mix the butter, cones, and toffee bits in a big bowl

+ Spread this mixture evenly over the pie dish of your choice (a 9 or 10-inch would work best).

+Refrigerate for 30 minutes.


Filling

Fair warning, this filling does call for some heat.

Ingredients:

+ 2 cups/2 large peaches divided

+ ½ cup sugar

+ 2 tbsp lemon juice

+ 1 tbsp cornstarch

+ 4 cups vanilla ice cream (softened if preferred)


Now, what do I do?

+ Mix 1 cup of peaches, sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch and cook over medium heat until thickened and bubbly

+ Reduce heat to low and cook/stir for 2 minutes longer

+ Remove from heat to cool slightly

+ Stir in remaining peaches 

+ Cool completely

+ Reserve a ½ cup of the peach mixture for a topping (cover and refrigerate)

+ With the remaining peach mixture, beat it into the ice cream until blended

+ Cover and freeze it overnight

 

Which one did you try? Do you prefer your desserts chocolate-y or fruity? Which pie crust do you think you'll do again? These are some of life's questions.
